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.
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’sComedy Vehicle which aired in the UK a couple of weeks ago…

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.
