The Show: Our hearts are full of regret and cholesterol…

Today’s show is woven between readings of the “WAP” lyrics by Ben Shapiro. We’ve not been as moved by a monologue since we first heard Richard Burton reciting Dylan Thomas.

As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, we chose to back Mr Shapiro’s oration with the latest offering from RZA – a brand new US ice cream truck jingle, written to replace the existing “well-known and problematic tune “Turkey in the Straw”.”

And on with the show…

The Show: Be urself

Today’s playlist was inspired by an Alexis Petridis article on the Guardian website – ‘Be urself’: meet the teens creating a generation gap in music

At The Joint HQ we love a good generation gap, the wider the better, so expect more from (and I’m paraphrasing heavily here) 80’s Sarah Records soundalikes racking up 30m+ YouTube views.

And we’ve just realised we still haven’t posted the video for CHAII’s Digebasse  (Enough), a massive oversight on our part which we can fix right now…

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.
