The Clifftown Podcast

In April 2021 M G Boulter released a new album exploring his suburban seaside experience called ‘Clifftown’. As a companion piece (and to explore the themes of the record in greater detail), M G has embarked on a fascinating and personable podcast exploring the culture, hidden history and stories of his hometown. Projected to last ten episodes the first few episodes explore amongst other things the personal history of Josceyline’s Beach (Chalkwell), Pub Rock, Southend RNLI, John Constable’s connection to Leigh-on-Sea and the tragic death of jazz pioneer Mike Taylor who is buried in Southend but also played a seminal show in 1960s Westcliff, causing a small riot. Join him and a host of characters and local people to explore the world of Clifftown.

The Clifftown Podcast can be accessed via iTunes or Spotify here.

If you want to hear bonus episodes and keep up with the podcast as it is release, you can join M G Boulter’s mailing list here.
