This week on the Cool As Leicester podcast we’re delighted to have one of our favourite musicians, Frank Turner, join us.

During lockdown Frank has been performing shows via Facebook in order to raise money for music venues, which are struggling during the Coronavirus lockdown. Performing each of his past albums in their entirety, Frank has raised over £10k each for venues including The Joiners in Southampton, London’s Nambucca and this week’s he’s fundraising for The Shed here in Leicester.

We caught up with him for our latest podcast episode to chat about the fundraising as well as his new album which comes out on Friday. We’ve also got mid-interview music from Leicester’s S. T. Manville.
