The first podcast ‘The Night Young Georgie Died’, focuses on the writing of ‘Let The River Run Its Course’ from the original Alarm lineup’s last studio album ‘Raw’, and features a brand new interview on the subject with Mike Peters.
The podcast also features some previously unheard demo recordings from the ‘Eye Of The Hurricane’ rehearsal sessions, where ‘Let The River Run Its Course’ started it’s initial creative journey under the working title ‘Georgie’ in 1987.

The song was reworked for a third time in 2011 as the version entitled ‘Strength To Strength’ that featured on the 30th Anniversary Alarm album ‘The Sound & The Fury’.
The Podcast series is a must listen event for all Alarm scholars, and promises to cover the group’s history with a respectful yet uncompromising editorial policy.
Let’s keep the flame of hope alive.
