Sid Speaks! Archive

The first two items uploaded to Sid Speaks! are Beeb radio shows with Sid Griffin’s elucid contributions included several different times. Funny enough, his is the only Kentucky accent heard. The third and final item is Sid being interviewed by a very kind Welsh DJ a few years back, the kind of media interaction Indie cult heroes perform all the time. If any of this reeks of Spinal Tap then so be it, in theory this should give the listener a greater idea of Sid’s career (if you can call it a career) and his activities outside music and writing.
