Slow starters: Frosty morning + damp engine = 10 minutes late. But the show must go on!
First – Brazil (an apology). Our barely concealed delight at Brazil crashing out of the World Cup was not aimed at the team directly but a result of us being sick of English commentators turning into the sports equivalent of Fox News journalists when covering their games. Fair and balanced? More like prejudiced and one eyed. Every Brazilian player who manages to trap a ball is lauded endlessly and a completed pass between team members is taken as evidence that Joga Bonito is alive and well. In reality it was only ever a Nike sales pitch.
Long burners: 25 years ago Katrina and the Waves released “Walking On Sunshine”. At the NPR website you can read the “Living On A Song” story of the never-ending rewards the band are reaping from the song’s success, or download the actually broadcast here. Apparently over the last decade the band were still averaging a million bucks a year in royalties. A lesson in always making sure you retain your publishing rights.

Alternatively, this is the raw, unpasteurized version of the show in mp3 format. No chapters, pictures or links. Slightly less quality. Otherwise the audio content is the same as the two files above. The choice is yours…..
