Huw Stephens - The Fountain of All Knowledge

The Moon Under Water

‘Hiraeth’ is a word that’s quite difficult to translate from Welsh into English. Essentially it’s a deep longing for something, especially one's home; but it’s so much more than that. For Landlord John, who resides in The Moon Under Water, it’s something he feels any time he leaves his ‘Pub of the Mind’ to return to the Earthly realm. Thankfully his feelings of hiraeth are about to be expunged as the doors of The Moon Under Water are being flung open once more to welcome this week’s guest. It’s radio presenter Huw Stephens!Huw grew up in Cardiff which, as well as being one of the all time great pub cities, is somewhere that Landlord John and the regular Robin frequented for a session in their earlier years. He’s also one of the big players on the UK music scene - if there’s a venue that Huw hasn’t been to then it’s not worth knowing about. But what would his dream pub look like? Will it have live music? Will it have a carpet? We just don’t know… yet!There are still tickets on sale for The Moon Under Water Live. There are two more dates in September, when we'll be inviting special guests to create their dream pub LIVE from a real pub (The George IV in Chiswick). Head over to moonunderpod.com for more info and to grab your tickets. The mystical realm awaits! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Front Row

As the Prime Minister sets out his roadmap to ending the Covid lockdown we get reaction from Dominique Frazer, Founder of the Boileroom, a music venue in Guildford, and Hamish Moseley, Managing Director of an independent film distribution company Altitude Film Entertainment, and ask if this offers them enough information to start to plan for the year ahead.Radio Wales DJ Huw Stephens discusses is three part documentary, The Story of Welsh Art, which looks as visual art in the country more associated with poets and singers. As Nick, a prequel to The Great Gatsby is published, we speak to it's author Michael Farris Smith on why the rather retiring character Nick Carraway deserved a backstory and Professor of Literature Diane Roberts joins to discuss the appeal of the genre.

Huw Stephens at Green Man Festival

Open Country

Huw Stephens is our guide to the Green Man Festival in the Brecon Beacons. As a DJ Huw has been to many festivals but the Green Man is a favourite. Set in his homeland of Wales the festival is not just about rock music but also about the place in which it is set. This year festival goers are invited to spend time on the site before the music starts to get back to nature and settle into the spirit of the place. Huw meets festival goers, musicians, local food producers and druids to try to understand why hearing music in the great outdoors can be such a powerful experience.
