THE DAY THE DONKEYS CAME FOR TEA!

Here we are for episode 443!

Meanwhile elsewhere, matters with The Shame Inspectors have come to a head... what are the implications for Yeti Uncle John!? Can Paul get him a reprieve? Our special guests this episode are Leigh Robertson from Chewing The Cud and we also have a new musical composition from our old friend, Harry F who shares with us a new piece called What Happens Now?

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 445:
LOST GEMS FROM THE MATINEE MINUTIAE ARCHIVES!

The films that are discussed are How About You (2007) and Meet John Doe (1941); they're also quite Christmassy films - so it seems quite typical of our podcast to release this episode in the height of summer! We will also hear from Cuthbert and some of the Smellcast gang tune in to the broadcasting of our recent Intergalactic quiz. Our next episode, #446 sees us catching up with the regulars who all have some pretty big news to relate! Do join us, won't you?!

Our last episode of June 2021 was full of gossip and revelations from the regulars - please, take a seat!...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 446:
ONE BURP FROM DEATH & OTHER ODD REVELATIONS!

Here we are for episode 446! This time Mr Yeti decides to encourage the regulars to come out with him for a picnic as they've not had a chance to do a day-trip as a house-hold in many a month! It sounds like a great idea until the gossip and revelations begin to trickle out! Nick returns with more chat about a 1978 edition of Look-In! We also have a quiz with Calum and a vaguely shocking chat with Harry full of revelations of its own! Our next episode, #447 sees Martin Holmes returning to the show to discuss some of the big hits of 1969... What will Ikk sing us this time around? Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler and Soundbible. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2021.

Finally, this post - there is hot debate (not really!) about whether this episode belongs in June or July as although it was finished on the 30th June it probably didn't appear in anyone's podcatcher until the 1st July; but... well... here it is anyway!

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 447:
SHY YETI'S FOND FAREWELL TO THE 60S!
(THE HITS OF 1969!)

Here we are for episode 447! This time on the show Martin Holmes joins us again to discuss the music of 1969 as we head rapidly towards the end of the 1960s; Ikk is also back to sing us some of the hits of that year and Yeti Uncle John has a quick word too! Our next episode, #448 sees us updating the situation relating to some of the surprising news that we learnt during our recent picnic/gossip episode! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2021. Episode 447 was recorded on the 4th March 2021.

This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:

447: https://soundcloud.com/shyyeti/the-shy-life-podcast-447-shy-yetis-fond-farewell-to-the-60s-the-big-hits-of-1969

I'm concerned that the debate about whether 447 is a June or July episode will split fans down the middle, rather like certain political decisions in the UK of late... but I hope not... What I will say, however, is that if you consider it a June episode then it means that 10 episodes were released during June - which is the first time that has happened since July 2020; although it's not a record as we released 11 episodes back in June 2020... Those lockdown months at home were very fruitful for us in that there was very little else to do but edit podcasts! Anyway! It's time to say farewell for this post now...

Next time we'll be looking out all the episodes that we'll be releasing this month (July 2021)!

That's all for now...

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

We also have a Spring 1997 Sutton Park clip which follows on from the one in our last edition! It's all good fun - but there are definitely some technical hitches along the way!
