The show: Morer betterer cowbell (but 25% less show)

Once again we struggled to come to terms with some of the new technology at our disposal in the relaunched RDU studio, so the show didn’t really get underway until 12:30. Some would say our obsession to set up cowbells next to the mixing desk caused the delay but they need to take a good, long, hard look at themselves. Priorities, people. Priorities.

But here’s that playlist in full…

The Show: And you may ask yourself, how do I work this?

Things got off to an amazing start when Fraserhead forgot which channel to plug his laptop into.
Things in the new studio got off to an amazing start when Fraserhead forgot which channel to plug his laptop into. Turned out to be the 19th channel from the right.

The Show: An ostrich in a soda siphon

Letting our freak flag fly today by using Hawkwind’s “Assault & Battery (Part One)” as the last tune on the show, but it’s not an original idea. The inspiration came from the closing credits of  “Satire”, part of the third season of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle which aired in the UK a couple of weeks ago…

The show: Baby

One for the music nerds out there, the amazing story of Donnie & Joe Emerson. A farmer notices that his sons are really into music so he builds them a studio and they record a lost classic in 1979.

Been listening to Ariel Pink’s new album “Mature Themes” and enjoying his cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s 1979 lost classic “Baby”. Apparently it’s been known about for years in record collector circles but I only found out about it recently via The Guardian Music Weekly 8 June 2012 podcast.

Record collectors can now rejoice because Light in The Attic Records is reissuing the “Dreamin’ Wild” album on fresh vinyl.

And here’s what the hype is about. Dig those Christine McVie style vocals…
