The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

And on with the show…

The Show: Public Service Broadcasting’s Eleven Cities Tour

Elfstedentocht. Eleven Cities Tour.

It’s the world’s biggest ice skating race, taking in the Dutch cities of Leeuwarden, Sneek, IJlst, Sloten, Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker and Dokkum, but it only happens when all the waterways connecting the cities are frozen to a depth of at least 15cm and the last time that happened was 1997.

That 16 year gap didn’t stop the Explore The North Festival commissioning Joint favourites Public Service Broadcasting to write two brand new songs to accompany archival footage of the event. The results were released on line this week and Elfstedentocht Part One made it onto today’s playlist.

The show: Born too late or born too soon?

Quite like this Dent May fellow. He makes good, honest, truthful, wholesome videos that show off his waterskiing prowess, hanging around in fairgrounds, and frolicking in waterfalls.

Apologies for the quality of sound – the RDU transmitter was playing up today, including a complete digital meltdown at the 18 and a half minute mark – but here’s the playlist in full…
