Well then. Well then, well then, well then. Here we all are. Together again at last, for the first time, again.
In a specially extended episode, featuring some additional "um"s, "errr"s, "uuhhh"s and "y'know"s than in the original Radio Six transmission, The Good Lookin' Boys™ discuss broadcasting under the influences of drink and the fumes of glue being used to affix stolen ceiling tiles, and the dead air and tomfoolery that arises from it. Spike reveals - for the first time in twelve years - the details behind the legendary "Tracy Would Get It Night". She's won... a seeing-to! Plus, The Boys run down the week's news in a pickin' and grinnin' stylee.
...and that was Andy Williams.
Segment Two, starting at 16:40, struggles with introductions that don't sound like late 1960s offshore pirate radio. Heeeyyyyy! It's this week in stuuuuuuff! No, but really; This Week In Stuff, a website that has hurtled Paul back in time via the gift of a forward-thinking young early-80s cheekie chappie, who had the presence of mind to take his Sony TCS-310 Stereo Cassette Recorder to the arcade and, as we in the biz call it, "roll tape" on some ambiance that's long gone. This, in turn, leads into a discussion on whether reveling in retro is erasing the original not-quite-a-square-not-quite-a-circle-shaped-screen memories of youth and the editing of classic Warner Brothers cartoons. THO-MAS!!
41:00 sees a section cut from the Radio Six International broadcast, where Spike writes a passionate, vitriolic break-up letter to the city of Pittsburgh PA, in a section of the show that, for legal reasons, cannot - under any circumstances - be referred to as his "Letter From America".
Segment Three at 46:33: more struggles with uncheezy radio segue ways, but Paul describes his passion for the Amazon Kindle (and is revealed to be a contributing blogger to the world famous Kindleville blog) and gets called a poof in the process for preferring Sherlock Homes to Andy McNabb. Pew pew pew pew!! Speaking of pooves, Spike declares his reluctant love for the Disney Channel's "Sonny With A Chance", therefore nullifying his hurling cheap, homophobic slurs at anyone.
It's competition time at 1:00:40, where you - yes, YOU! - have the chance to win the grand prize: having a limerick written about you. Alls you have to do is figure out which newsmaking figure is nicking Spike's hot water. Whoooooooo are they, and what are they talking about? Email answers in to The Usual Address - this week's competition draws to a close on the 11th of March.
