In October of 1970, Sandy Denny appeared on the Danish radio show, Beatgæst (Beat Guest), to play some of her favorite songs.
Recorded during her time with Fotheringay, this 44-minute show is a rare treat, as you get to hear in perfect fidelity, Denny’s thoughts on everyone from Steeleye Span to The Rolling Stones, Jack Bruce and more. What makes this recording even more rare, is that you can only listen to it on the Danish Cultural Heritage’s website until late-December.
You can click here to listen to the show in its entirety. It’s a charming and fascinating insight into Denny’s music taste and her views of her contemporaries, plus…there’s something really surreal about hearing Denny quoting “and now for something completely different,” which occurs early in the program.
