Episode 100 – Goodbye

Back in late 2012, I was listening to a number of music related podcasts and fancied putting a show together of my own. The first thing was the name. Well, The Squire was a nom de plume I had used for a number of years before hand so that was easy. The origin of the name though is something for another time and place.  The tag line of ‘the podcast that brings you the wonderful, the obscure and the just plain bizarre’ came to me rather quickly as well. What took the longest time was trying to work out what the hell would the first show contain. I eventually settled on the idea that it would contain records from the Squire Archive that were just before the time in which The Beatles became the musical behemoth they were to become. I also remember those early podcasts stating that this would be an irregular podcast because I felt that I would neither have the time or the subject matter to complete a new episode a month. Well, that went out of the window pretty quickly and there has been a new episode every month since November of 2012. 

Well, that was then and this is now. So after 99 episodes, I have decided to make the 100th the last of the initial run. It seems a good place to finish. I have rediscovered some records in the archive I forgot I had, bought in new ones to complete shows and interviewed some wonderful guests.  I must thank them for giving up their time to talk to me. I must also thank the people behind the scenes who have help in one way or another to bring this show to life. For the theme of this show, I will be using songs that say goodbye in one way or another as this seems like a fitting way to say farewell, adios, adieu and most probably the most fitting would be arrivederci.
