The Show: Remember I was your hippo, I’d wear your heart like a Zippo

First up, let us acknowledge that the misheard lyric meme is tired, dated and had burnt itself out way before memes even existed.

Having said that, we did have cause to stop and stare in wonder at our speakers the other week when we listened to the opening verse of The Weeknd’s “Less Than Zero”. The accompanying  lyric video confirmed that we had misunderstood the words and that the couplet in question wasn’t actually hippo & Zippo but hero & symbol.

Far be it from us to advise Mr. Tesfaye on song writing, but we just can’t help but feel that our take is slightly better.  After all, it does actually rhyme. Plus, no matter what anybody tells us, we still hear a song about semiaquatic mammals and lighters.

And on with the show…

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.

Today the Herb Whisperer promises lots of indie.

For you vinyl nutters and Madlib aficionados out there, have a peek at this wonderful interview with Laura Leishman in the Radio France vinyl archive. Love the fact that Madlib bugs out when discovering rare records in the vaults. More from the Radio Vinyle series here.
