Music podcast 101 Part Time Jobs, which explores the ‘day jobs’ of musicians, has announced that it will be taking its show in front of a live audience for the first time, interviewing singer Hak Baker on stage.
Host of the podcast and radio producer Giles Bidder will interview Baker at the Strongroom Bar in Shoreditch on 11 July about his most recent debut album Worlds End FM. Tickets are currently on sale at £8 including a free drink, with guest DJs following the recording.
“Hak Baker has lived a few different lives. Growing up in the East End of London, he never had anything given to him and has had to work for everything he has. There have been a couple of misadventures but that's what 101 Part Time Jobs is about - the trial and error lifestyle of being an artist,” said Bidder.
“His new album ‘Worlds End FM’ completely floored me, and having a great community venue like Strongroom in Shoreditch close to where Hak is from is the perfect place to to start 101 live shows.”
Since launching in 2017, other musicians that have been interviewed on the 101 Part Time Jobs podcast include Self Esteem, Yard Act, Teenage Fanclub, Tim Burgess, The Mountain Goats, and many more. The podcast increased its subscribers by 300% and social media engagement by 600% in 2022.
The podcast will also record two further live shows this year, one at the 2000 Trees festival interviewing indie-pop duo Prima Queen, and one at the ArcTanGent festival, details of which have yet to be revealed.
101 Part Time Jobs is produced by Mighty Moon Media, the company founded by Bidder, which is also behind the documentary podcast Creeper: The Story Of… Sex, Death & the Infinite Void on the story of the UK punk rock band of the same name.
