Johnny, June & Saul: The Finale of The Best Country Music Podcast. Ever. Out Now

"The Best London Country Music Podcast. Ever” celebrates London’s long love affair with country music and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductees from our region. It is inspired by London’s role as host of CCMA Country Music Week 2021.

Johnny, June & Saul is classic country music story — and the perfect finale for The Greatest London Country Music Podcast. Ever.

Johnny Cash and June Carter were US superstars and the late Londoner Saul Holiff managed Johnny and June through the troubled 1960s before parting ways in 1973. It was Saul Holiff who brought June Carter into the Cash touring family in 1961. As the tours continued, Cash and Carter — who were married to others — fell in love.

Johnny, June and Saul tells how that passion led to an on-stage proposal in London on Feb. 22, 1968. Making the proposal on-stage at the old London Gardens in Holiff’s hometown was a nod to Holiff’s support of Cash during the worst times of The Man In Black’s career.

Researched by Emily Stewart and Roberto Figueroa, Johnny, June and Saul is a podcast hit in their own voices.
