An Uncanny Hour - November 2020

An Uncanny Hour is a series of audio documentaries made by Robin Ince "on the weird and the uncanny corners of culture." The publication of Days Of The Underground inspired him to make an entire episode about Hawkwind! Here's the blurb:

"In episode two we go back to the 1970s, and the height of the British counterculture. A time when space rock group Hawkwind ruled combining eye-splitting noise, technology, art and science fiction. Robin Ince talks to performance artist and Hawkwind member Stacia Blake, admirers Stewart Lee and Alan Moore, musician Jane Weaver, prog journalist Jo Kendall and the author of a new book on Hawkwind, Joe Banks."

And here's the video preview:

It debuted 14 November 2020. The only snag is that you have to pay to hear the whole thing:

However, here's a Season One anthology that includes clips from some of the people interviewed for the Hawkwind episode, including Alan Moore, Stephen Morris and Jane Weaver, though not me... Still, nice plug for the book at the start - listen from 5.20:
