The Show: Are you the goddamn Coronavirus?

This week’s show was put together quickly, incorporating large chunks of Conan O’Brien’s Self-Quarantine podcast (featuring Andy Daly) and huge swathes of the 2020 BBC Radio 6 Music Festival.

However, the time we saved was put to good use. We managed to get in 8 – 10 solid hours of worrying about the future of the world. Job done.

And on with the show…

The Show: Happy Christmas From The Stars

neteToday’s show contained snippets from a flexi-disc that was given away with a December 1982 edition of Smash Hits. The top pop stars of the day (plus The Piranhas‘ Boring Bob Grover) recorded special Christmas greetings for the readers. The idea was Neil Tennant’s, the news editor at the time.

To hear recollections from other writers and editors have a listen to The Word podcast “Remembering Smash Hits” taken from one of this year’s Word In Your Ear events. One anecdote involves heroin, Marilyn, Jimmy Saville, sea cadets, French restaurateurs and a stroppy teenager from Rochdale – all the elements you need for a true Christmas tale.

And here’s the playlist in full…
