The Show: Never mind the NRA. What about the GOA, the NAGR, the SAF and, of course, the JPFO?*

If, like us, you’re fed up with the NRA because they don’t go far enough in protecting the 2nd amendment rights of our Trans-Pacific cousins, then let us introduce you to the Gun Owners Of America, the National Association for Gun Rights, the Second Amendment Foundation and, our favourite, Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership (motto: “You do NOT have to be Jewish to join us!“).

Listen to those NRA socialist weasels kowtowing to authoritarian police bureaucrats in the YouTube clips we play during today’s show.

Another thing we can’t all agree on is the gender pay gap, judging by the comments on the “77” video from Alice Bag.

The Show: Scissor Sister

We’re enjoying the first couple of tunes from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds new album so much we snuck one on to the show today. “She Taught Me How to Fly” first caught our eye on an episode of Later with Jools Holland at the end of October. Look carefully. One member of the band is on backing scissors.

Blow out the candles and make a wish while you can

Goodbye to The Year of the Monkey. Hello to The Year of the Rooster. And to be honest… good riddance to 2016. At least we had the likes of NO BRA aka Susanne Oberbeck able to make an off-kilter year even more off-kilterer.

Into 2017 we go. Things stay thankfully, mercifully, and healthily even more off-kilterer with Mary Ocher.
