The Show: Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You Hanging Up Your Stocking On Your Wall? Are You…

Tried to avoid any Christmas frivolity this year but the pull towards festive nonsense was too great.

Plus, the repeated-lyric-reworking of Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” put us in mind of an equivalent deconstruction someone performed on The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” a few years ago.

The Show: Georgia? What about Michigan, Boston, Florida, Jamaica or Jordan? Or Scunthorpe.

Welcome to our “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” YouTube wormhole, wherein the Charlie Daniel’s Band classic is re-interpreted in a variety of ways. Several are zany, one is borderline racist, one is evangelical but all of them all awful. You’re welcome.

The only reason we’re giving the K.M.C. Kru a pass is because we are suckers for that late 80’s early 90’s hip hop vibe.

The Show: Taite Gallery

Happy birthday Aotearoa. Happy birthday Bob Marley. And most importantly, happy birthday Neil Swiggs, Esq.

Going way back to 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand, legendary music journalist Dylan Taite interviewed legendary rastaman Bob Marley, an interview secured via the well worn journalist’s route of “having a kick-around.”

And here’s the playlist (not quite) in full… we’re missing a few minutes where we played the Melvin van Peebles song. Apologies. That’s what hot weather and power cuts does to broadcasting equipment.

The Show: Fennoscandia

We make the faux pas so you don’t have to.

Fraserhead unreservedly apologises to Finnish band K-X-P and Finnish listeners for calling them Scandanavian in his “sneaky Scandanavian foursome” halfway through the show.

According to Wikipedia:

In English, Scandinavia usually refers to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

When a speaker wants to explicitly include Finland alongside Scandinavia-proper, the geographic terms Fenno-Scandinavia or Fennoscandia are sometimes used in English, although these terms are hardly if at all used within Scandinavia.

More precisely, and subject to no dispute, is that Finland is included in the broader term ‘Nordic countries’.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.


Happy birthday Herb Whisperer. Hope you like the BROS picture disc.
