The Show: Old Dundonian.

Today’s show leans heavily on (some might say “rips huge chunks from”) an interview that Mark Blyth gave to Ken Early in a recent edition of the Second Captains Podcast.

We like the cut of Mr Blyth’s jib. We like the cut of his Dundonian accent even more, particularly the emphasis that he gives the cr in crisp and crap.

The Show: Joe Frank RIP


The inspiration behind Chris Morris’ Bluejam?

Is it possible to write a sincere eulogy for a person whose existence you weren’t even aware of before they died? That’s the position we find ourselves in with Joe Frank. Lauded this week in many of the podcasts we listen to, we’ve now had a crash course in his surreal and sardonic monologues. For anyone wanting to embark on that same course, there is a Joe Frank documentary, completed before his death, due out this year.

In other audio related news, DPRK’s Moranbong Band make their debut on today’s show in light of their forthcoming PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics appearance. Widely thought to be a gesture designed to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula, the fate of our entire civilisation rests upon the reception to their bombastic mangling of extra-cheesy 80’s pop. May God help us all.

The Show: Scissor Sister

We’re enjoying the first couple of tunes from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds new album so much we snuck one on to the show today. “She Taught Me How to Fly” first caught our eye on an episode of Later with Jools Holland at the end of October. Look carefully. One member of the band is on backing scissors.

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.
