Phil Sparrow’s Afghanistan.

For those of you who missed the interview last night – here it is. I think I advertised the time wrongly, so big eggs to me.

  1. I really like the way you see and have compassion on Afghanistan. You look like a mix of John the Baptist and John the disciple, so strong and yet so sensitive.
    Blessings to you.

    Thanks for posting this link cause I missed it live.
    A great summary and reflection on your time in Afghanistan.
    The anecdotes and stories were the highlights, even though I’d heard most of them before.
    The maggoty Mars Bars …

    So glad you finished with the BLISS story, very moving, as evidenced by your own emotional reaction in telling it.

    And who’d have thought we’d ever yearn for the days of Malcolm Fraser?

    Hope you had/have a good weekend camping with the Broadies.

    Take care


  3. Hi Phil

    Your interview on ABC on the 16th of September was insightful and a great listen.

    I also really enjoyed the music selection where I believe you played an Algerian musician’s tune with some amazing guitar, however I cannot find the name of it or the tune itself on the podcast on the ABC site and they are not publishing the name of it on their website for some reason.

    Could you share this with me as I would like to hear it again and possibly more of their work 🙂


    • Hi Adam
      Thanks for the comment.
      I think the guitarist was the piece played at the end. It was the Mexican duo, Rodrigo and Gabriela. I think the piece was ‘One’. Or it might have been ‘Mr Tang’. They are sensational players – funny too, if you listen to them. The albums I have are ‘Live Manchester and Dublin’, and ‘Rodrigo y Gabriela’.
      (If this is the wrong music let me know – the other guitar piece was by Colin Hay, and he played ‘I’m doing fine’. The Algerian was Souad Massi – she sang ‘Paris’.

      Thanks again – glad you enjoyed it!.
