Newsletter

I love putting my talkRADIO show together - bashing heads with my producer, Holly, to decide what we’re going to cover and why.

In my weekly newsletter - Darryl Morris Weekly - I throw open the doors to our production meeting and let you in what we’re thinking and how we decide what to talk about.

Subscribe here and it’ll land in your inbox every Friday afternoon - and catch up on previous editions too.

Darryl Morris Weekly – 12.02.21 – Consequences

“Is this the start of the new order that we’ve been promised?” barked Eileen, calling from Liverpool with a well-worn theory; that somebody, somewhere is crafting a new world order and we’re all puppets in their game. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get to the bottom of who they are – or

Darryl Morris Weekly – 29.01.21 – One Hundred Thousand

Darryl Morris Weekly – 22.01.21 – Humans

This year’s live music events began to tumble this week, with Glastonbury officially cancelled and many others set to follow – likely wiping out most of 2021’s festival season.

Darryl Morris Weekly – 15.01.21 – Brewing Storms

A quick thanks if you have signed up in the last week. We had an odd surge. I can only assume we have reached the point of lockdown where most of us have read the entire back catalogue of modern literature and watched every available minute of Netflix and have,

Darryl Morris Weekly – 08.01.21 – The United States of WTF?
