The Show: Cover letters

The Joint has always maintained that if you’re going to cover a song, do it properly. Give the original a good aural kicking down a back alley and ignore any accusations of a lack of respect towards the original material.

We said it in the letters pages of Smash Hits* when Paul Young covered “Love Will Tear Us Apart” in 1983 and we’re saying it again today as we playlist Brian Case’s radical re-working of Elvis Costello / Robert Wyatt’s “Shipbuilding

Paul Duncan presents Le Rôti du Dimanche

The last we heard from Paul Duncan was his final Sunday Roast show way back in March 2016, just before he disappeared into the French hinterland.

After a turbulent 18 months navigating the fall out of Brexit and the near miss of a Marine Le Pen Presidency, he’s emerged unbowed to produce his first guest mix for The Joint. In so doing he now becomes our official Nouvelle-Aquitaine Correspondent.

Sunday May 11th, 1980, 6:55am

Thanks, once again, to The Intercepted for the Trump skits that preface the start of their podcasts and that we shamelessly recycle in our mixes. This week’s GoodFellas effort is particularly good and had us fondly recalling one of the greatest cinematic depictions of coke paranoia.

If they had been wiseguys, I wouldn’t have heard a thing. I would’ve been dead
