The Show: Every time we meet we play hide and seek

It’s taken a little over 11 months but The Herb Whisperer has finally managed to watch his first complete film of 2020 – Steve McQueen’s “Lovers Rock”. Admittedly, it’s only 70 minutes long so it wasn’t much of a stretch.  Plus 10 of those 70 minutes were comprised of just one song, the extended (then a cappella) version of Janet Kay’s “Silly Games” that closes today’s show

And on with the show…

The Show: Bloody Anglo-Saxons. Coming over here.

We’d love to be able to present you with a video of the Stewart Lee bit that was sampled on today’s last song courtesy of Asian Dub Foundation.

But we can’t.

The best we can manage is a slightly (deliberately?) wonky clip on  Daily Motion. So you’ll just have to close your eyes for four minutes whilst the picture is frozen but the audio keeps rolling.

On the other hand we do have the official video for the tune

The Show: I sold my life rights for a big check and I’m upset…

Fraserhead at the controls today, starting off with some poetry from the one and only Lana Del Rey. To be fair, if Lana Del Rey read the phone book we would play that too. Actually, does anyone still produce phone books these days? And if poetry isn’t your thing then we’ve got new cuts from CHC cats ZANE 2000, Modern Chair, Internet Death, 2XM & Jess Aspinwall, and there’s synths, beats, and a few soundscapes to round it all off..
