The world of THE SHY LIFE PODCAST is a strange world; a world where Shy Yeti and his friends live! Just as you are beginning to think that it is a completely normal place it will turn around and surprise you and quite probably some very odd things will happen; but I really do promise that they'll be enjoyable...

Here we are for episode 607! This time we join Paul and Cuthbert as we share with you some recordings from the late 80s and early 90s...  Some of the voices you will recognise - Nick, Paul's brother Graham and Paul himself - but others may be less familiar. Cuthbert is on hand to help, but we also have a brief chat recorded recently with Paul, Nick and Toppie Smellie about restoring and preserving old tapes! Thanks to everyone who sent me their tapes so many years ago - I bet you never expected them to appear on a podcast in 2023! Our next show, #608 sees us coming face to face with Coconut Jim - on more than one occasion... And it's all very odd! Thankfully Uncle Warren is on hand to try and make sense of this encounter! Email us at if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it. The music is by Shy Yeti, Muffleyontour, Harry F and Luca. Sound effects by Paul C and Soundbible. All other content is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2023. Paul's links for episode 607 were recorded on the 16th January 2023, Cuthbert's links were recorded between the 17th and 18th of January 2023, with the brief chat between Paul, Toppie and Nick was recorded during another recording session on the 14th January 2023. The actual archive audio clips were originally recorded somewhere between 1988 and 1992 Please note: Due to the age of these audio tapes - the sound quality is a little faded in places but should be perfectly listenable if you're not an overly fussy audio snob. Thank you.
