The Show: Game over

game-over

Greetings friends, family, whānau.

Today is our last show before we head off on an indefinite sabbatical. Other commitments mean we need to take a break for a while.

The Joint first broadcast on RDU way back in July 2001 when the frequency was still 98.3FM. We started out on Sunday afternoons but after a while switched to Saturday afternoons. The reasons are lost in the mists of time.

By our really rough and unscientific calculations we reckon we’ve done 665 shows so far. That makes this final show today episode number 666. Not a shabby effort really. To put that in some completely unrelated context Ryan Giggs made 672 league appearances for Manchester United and David O’Leary made 558 league appearance for Arsenal.

Thank you for all your kind messages via Facebook, Twitter and the RDU text machine. It was a blast.

To paraphrase and plagiarise James Murphy…

Yeah, we lost our edge
The kids came up from behind
We lost our edge to the kids
From France and from London
And from Christchurch
But we were there
We lost our edge to better-looking people
With better ideas and more talent
And they’re actually really, really nice

The Show: Outsourced

Sarah Nicol - Resonance FM

Special guest star: Sarah Nicol – Resonance FM

Sometimes you need a helping hand from the heavy hitters. For that reason we flew in Sarah Nicol, manager of legendary London radio station Resonance FM, for a refresher on how to properly do a radio show.

Sarah gave us some good advice on how to stalk music legends (e.g. James Murphy, Jane Weaver, Trevor Jackson) without looking like a stalker, how to get backstage at gigs (e.g. Despacio), and how to pick music (e.g. go to a record shop and overwhelm yourself with the vinyl selection).

Consider ourselves schooled. We will attempt to put this new found and valued advice into action from now on.

The Show: Christmas songs come earlier every year

Oh no. F(l)at Eric !!! The video for Mr. Oizo’s “Ham” is disturbing stuff.

Even more disturbing is this fan version. Utter genius.
