Joseph Ridgwell talks to The Grind Journal

Sunday night at 11pm

I decided to have a flick through twitter as I tried not to think about having to go to work the next day, when I saw it. SHIT! I forgot to tune into Castle FM! I knew that Joseph Ridgwell was going to be on talking about all things literary, but it had slipped my mind. Whilst at twitter I quickly flew a tweet over, urgently asking them where I could find this guaranteed gem of insightful knowledge. They replied, to my dismay, that it was gone and lost. They’re live on the radio and then they’re gone. Basically, you missed it buddy, better not forget next time!

It wasn’t until a few days later when Joe pointed me to this! He had managed to get it onto youtube for all to hear as many times as they want! I’m sure it’s a bit shorter than the radio show was so I’m unsure what’s missing but let’s focus on what’s there.

He talks us through all of his knowledge of the exciting lit phenomenon that has always been the underground. He has interesting facts and a fountain of knowledge on every aspect it seems. I know he really is passionate about it because a few times now he has asked for my address and sent me over some One O’clock Guns along with other goodies, just for the pure passion. He really does love what he talks about on the show.

My favorite part of it though has to be, the One O’clock Gun story where they joke that they are going to put a curse on a lady who wouldn’t let them hand out their papers for free. You’ll be amazed when you listen.

We’d also like to give Joseph a big thanks for the shout-out although I know that he wouldn’t have done it if he didn’t mean it. You should all check out his work, rambling booze filled stories and poems that build up the life that he has led as well as much more.
