#44 - Andrew Hansen (The Chaser) on Jeff Lynne 'Armchair Theatre'

Did you watch the Grammys on Sunday and think “Wow, who was that bearded dude playing that awesome medley with Ed Sheeran?” Well this is the podcast for you.


This week, Andrew Hansen, the spiritually British but actually Australian member of Logie winners The Chaser and half the team behind “Dead Caesar” and “The Blow Parade”, joins host Jeremy Dylan to express his love for ELO frontman Jeff Lynne’s 1990 solo debut album “Armchair Theatre”.

They ask (and answer) questions like - What made this album so out of step with its times? How did George Harrison influence the sound of the album? What was Lynne’s role in The Traveling Wilburys? How is Lynne like Kevin Bloody Wilson? Is ten o'clock actually the correct time to rock?
