Chat with Fred Eaglesmith after the 8am news

We pre-recorded a chat with Fred Eaglesmith and we’ll share it with you this morning. Not the best quality I’m afraid. I did it on the phone at home (not the preferred method) .. despite the poor quality the interview was one of my favourites and I hope you join us and bear with us during the conversation.fred Eaglesmith3
