It was 10 years ago yesterday – Part 1

A trawl through The Joint audio vaults has uncovered a set of previously unpodcasted shows from 10 years ago.

So for your nostalgic listening pleasure we present the first two hours of a programme that went to air on the 27th January 2007.

Lots and lots and lots of Ed Banger material.

Scientist Wins The World Cup (1982, Greensleeves)

Turns out that the Scientist album “Scientist Wins The World Cup” was indeed released in 1982. Bloody prolific that fella. More about him here. And that’s probably all we’ll say about the World Cup from now on.

The Show: Gene Krupa – Drummin’ man

There’s a magnificent run of rhymes in the Davis song “Levert” we played today – sutures, computer, luger, Krueger, cougar, tutor, tumour and tuna amongst others – but the one that made us take notice was:

New lease on life learning drum like Gene Krupa

Nice to hear a name check for the drummin’ man.

As a special bonus you can peer behind the curtain at the inner (inane?) workings of The Joint when we forget to turn the microphones off at the 1:41:20 mark. Will these off-air comments prove to be our Rachel Smalley moment? Strain your ears to find out.

The show: What peeps said we should have played last year

Today’s show 70’s rock, 80’s soundtracks, 90’s jungle & songs people tell us we should’ve played last year instead of the songs we did play.

Speaking of the 1980s, couldn’t resist sorry. Got reminded of the original last night and then this morning Woody aka Mudd of Sound Check reminded me of this lovely version of “I can’t go for that” as performed on Daryl Hall’s web TV show Live from Daryl’s House
