The Show: It seems nowadays cab rides are rather pricely…

On the show today, highlights include a sneaky threesome from the new ITALIANS DO IT BETTER compilation “After Dark 3”, new releases from Ōtautahi Christchurch denizens HORN, VIOLET FRENCH, T.G. SHAND, LOCAL FLORIST., ZANE 2000, DOUJIN DUKE, and WURLD SERIES.

Plus our favourite Brisbane beatsmith ANARCHOSOPHIST recently got in touch to remind us about a few of his new cuts. If you like woozy, lofi, soundtrack hip-hop and you like cats then you’re sure going to dig “The Cat King in the Year of the Plague”…

By the way, today’s show title originated with an earworm of the Bob James classic “Angela” lead to a YouTube treasure hunt starting with Bob James discussing being sampled by the hip-hop community:

And thus led to the (re)discovery of Souls of Mischief “Cab Fare”:

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..

And on with the show…

The Show: And here’s David with the weather…

In these post-lockdown Covid-19 times of social austerity and a craving for “normality” there was a brief temptation to revert The Joint to a conventional adult-contemporary radio format. For that reason we roped in David Lynch to do a regular weather report for us.

And it’s not a new phenomenon born out of recent cabin fever but something he’s done on and off for years.  E.g. here’s the weather report from 1 February 2005 with assistance from Laura Dern.

The Show: 1966. A good year…

And a happy birthday to The Herb Whisperer. Like Eric Cantona, he too was born in 1966. And much like Cantona’s genius performances on the pitch, Herb’s presence in the Old Trafford stands back in the day helped lay the foundation for Manchester United’s domination of English football throughout the 1990s and early 2000s.

But that’s enough football history. On with the show…
