Glastonbury Redux - Adam and Joe style

Glastonbury used to be a high spot in the Adam and Joe calender but they haven't broadcast from there since 2011. Happily, there are carefully curated archives, dotted around the net. Of course, Adam & Joe presented some telly stuff in the early noughties but we don't want to go back that far, do we?

The Shows:

The first Adam & Joe BBC 6 Music Glasto broadcast was supposed to be in 2008 but Joe went all sicky. Luckily, Garth was more than happy to hitch a ride with Adam and they made a lovely show, with Adam going the customary extra mile to include some special content. 

2009 was Adam and Joe's golden year at 6 Music. The station could hardly believe the sensation they'd unleashed. At Glastonbury, they gave them two evening shows (Sunset Shows) and two morning shows AND a couple of Glasto Gold pre-recorded introductions in the small hours.

Despite having left the station at the end of 2009, they returned to Glasto for three afternoon shows in 2010 and I've included the handover they did with Jarvis on the Sunday.

The 2011 Glasto shows marked the end of their brief return to the station, which began in April as Joe's first feature was being released.

I've put a playlist here of the edited shows (not the podcasts) in chronological order. The music (sadly), news and trails have been removed to better appease the copywright peeps.

In 2009 we had a wonky webcam giving us occasional still shots but in 2010 and 2011 they had moving images, much to the angst of our squadron leaders.

Some more 2010 snips can be found here, here and here.

Oh, all right then - here's a golden oldie
