The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

Don’t forget to support the sponsors of the show – Future Promotions, Innocence Back2Back Mixtapes and, of course, the Ravers Dateline (0839812752 to meet boy ravers and 0839812753 to meet girl ravers).

And on with the show…

The Show: Dogshit Policies

Interstitial (been waiting to use that word for a while) spoken word pieces taken  from AOC’s questioning of Mark Zuckerberg during a recent US congressional hearing, with Zuckerberg’s responses neatly summarized by Nish Kumar during Bugle 4121 – “Dogshit policies”.

The Show: Georgia? What about Michigan, Boston, Florida, Jamaica or Jordan? Or Scunthorpe.

Welcome to our “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” YouTube wormhole, wherein the Charlie Daniel’s Band classic is re-interpreted in a variety of ways. Several are zany, one is borderline racist, one is evangelical but all of them all awful. You’re welcome.

The only reason we’re giving the K.M.C. Kru a pass is because we are suckers for that late 80’s early 90’s hip hop vibe.

The Show: Heavy Metal Parking Lot

Brand new Shit & Shine with an accompanying video (see above) that uses footage from the 1986 documentary Heavy Metal Parking Lot (see below).

This, in turn, has inspired the Judas Priest links in today’s show. Who knew Rob Halford was so omnipresent on MTV promos and commercials in the mid 80’s (apart from 240 million Americans, that is)? TURBO POWER!

It’s a milestone in the careers of both Donny Osmond and Elton John as they both make their full Joint debuts, independently of each other but in the same unlikeliest of circumstances (hip-hop collaborations).

Plus The Sesh is back courtesy of Clara!.
