The Show: ’79 Fever

Today’s opening (and truly mind boggling) song came courtesy of the Industrial Musicals website.

As well as an online archive, with audio snippets from a variety of these musicals from the 50’s to the 80’s, there’s also a book “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” which is making a strong early bid to be The Joint’s Christmas stocking filler.

The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour (and Ebony Bones)

Like Ebony Bones, The Joint is partial to a little bit of glamour.

As we mention towards the end of the show, we did encounter some problems with the recording for the podcast. We’ve had to resort to using our uncompressed back up option. The songs still sound pretty good though…
