00:00 Roger Slipknott dips into the BBC radio archive, bringing you exclusive off-air clips not heard since 1978, when The Dark Lord Satan sat in for Simon Bates on Radio 1. Satan, apparently, is none too happy with his newsreader. Uh-oh.
03:36 Right, enough rubbidge. Our Heroes make a triumphant return, having spent two weeks on the beach, sipping drinks and looking at the lovely ladies. Not really, but you will find out where they've been for the past fortnight, and hear of an upcoming exclusive offer from Time-Life! Paul looks back to his very first car, where the stereo and the brake lights just couldn't get along.
20:21 The Boys sift through the week's news in a country music stylee in "Pickin' and Grinnin'". Expect the NBC Nightly News to take on a similar format soon...
22:54 It's This Week In Stuff! Ergo, "the stuff that we're inta". The Boys discuss what's on their nightstands; "The Name Of The Wind" (spoiler alert! The name is revealed!) and a book about presidential campaigns that Spike is enjoying, but can't remember. (it's "Presidental Campaigns" by Paul Boller, by the way). Has Paul been watching a Scat movie? You betcha! Spike ruins a movie for a couple of cheeky teenage girls, and there's also some discussion about Paul's DSi, Spike's Wii, and why Nintendo are receiving an utter spanking by Microsoft and Sony over their online content. GEEK ALERT!
49:40 Meanwhile! In the Halls Of Justice! Superman! And Batman! Have unionised! It's "Over/Under", in which Our Heroes pick an over-rated cartoon series from their youth, and one under-rated one. Also, were Hannah Barbera demon recyclers? Did Tweety deserve everything he got? Oh - they need your help! Get in touch via email, the Facegroup Book or in the comments section below, and tell us what your Over/Under rated cartoons were. The parameters are any cartoon series made between 1965 and 1985.
Think you'd be a good guest on the show? The Boys are aiming for a summer of guests, so if you'd like to get in on the action, email the show and let 'em know. Whether you have a specialty, something to plug, or you just want to hang out, you're always welcome. Skype's your best option, but we'd also be happy to call you on the phone to join in, too.

It would be very awesome indeed for you to spread the good word about the show on your blog or your myspace, or your whatever. Click this link, and it will take you to a .txt file, in which resides the raw html code for you to use. Sounds complicated, but it's really not; it's just a cut and paste job, and the html elves do the rest. It will post the fancy-schmancy flash player you see at the top of the screen plus the direct download and the RSS feed. We'd really appreciate your passing the word on!
