Richard March has been in a huge array of bands and projects in his 30 years or so as a working muso. We first met when he was in the much loved Rhino and The Ranters; he started with Pop Will Eat Itself and Bentley Rhythm Ace. Now, he's with Swampmeat Family Band, with other projects bubbling away. Some of those come up in this podcast.

A footnote: the intro and outro flourishes I'm using in this series of Lives in Music podcast come from Vo Fletcher who is featured in this series along with Loz Kinsgley, here. I asked him for a bit of live impro, and this was the result.
The Lives in Music Podcast series has been
running for about two years now. These are interviews with local
musicians, looking at how music has shaped them throughout their
lives. Series 3
also looks hard at how lockdown has had an impact. There are some lovely stories. To see all the artists, here's a link to every episode.
