The Show: Our hearts are full of regret and cholesterol…

Today’s show is woven between readings of the “WAP” lyrics by Ben Shapiro. We’ve not been as moved by a monologue since we first heard Richard Burton reciting Dylan Thomas.

As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, we chose to back Mr Shapiro’s oration with the latest offering from RZA – a brand new US ice cream truck jingle, written to replace the existing “well-known and problematic tune “Turkey in the Straw”.”

And on with the show…

The Show: “Must we fling this filth at our pop kids?”

The Sunday People asked that question of the NME in 1973 and we’re asking the same question of ourselves in 2017.

And the answer is yes. Yes, we must fling this filth at our pop kids.

So thank you to Sexit, cupcakKe and Sälen for some particularly filthy flinging.
