Wiggy Podcast 10
Victim of Geography

In 1989 a crafty comment, during a political song festival, about rabbits running free gets Billy chucked out of East Berlin with a warning he would never play East Germany again. He didn’t - because within a year the Berlin Wall had come down.

In this episode, Billy, with some more nudge-nudge-wink-wink from Wiggy, recalls a year in which he never seemed to stop touring, winding up in Bolivia with Andy Kershaw making a programme for the BBC.

Recorded by Wiggy at Billy’s home in Dorset in February 2007
