RIP David Robert Jones (1947 – 2016)

The Joint curse strikes again ™.

Early yesterday evening I emailed The Herb Whisperer about David Bowie’s new “Blackstar” album and said this “doesn’t sound near-death like the last album.”

Half an hour later David Bowie’s death was announced.

Feel like a right jinxing cnut now.

RIP Mr Jones.

The show: Failing to bridge the generation gap

Can men of advanced years continue to broadcast saucy tunes made by young people without appearing, at best, odd or, at worst, creepy?

We’re not sure, so we invite you to listen to all of Posi+ive by Babeo Baggins in your own time.


And here’s today’s playlist in full…

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.

Moonage Daydream – this Saturday night at GBM

Moonage Dream - Saturday 4 December 2010 at Goodbye Blue Monday.

Hairdresser on Fire presents Moonage Daydream this Saturday night 4 December 2010 at Goodbye Blue Monday.

Freak out to the music of David Bowie and other glam rock with DJs Queen Bitch, The Goblin King and Lady Stardust.

The music starts at 10pm and it’s free !!!

On the show on Saturday when Hairdresser on Fire dropped in we briefly talked about David Bowie and codpieces and Labyrinth. 1986 was possibly Bowie’s weirdest ever year – having to act and sing in a movie with muppets and Jennifer Connelly’s monobrow and a fat baby. Strange times indeed.
