Profoundly bald.

If he's got phimosis then he's a shoo in for a login on C&B.

Just started this from episode 1. The main host's accent is really weird but I like the show!

Just wait until you google what Al looks like. You will be SHOCKED!!

The 'Sikh lad out of Shah Waddeh Waddeh' is an early anecdote, isn't it? That remains my favourite CM thing.

I would happily Patreon a spinoff pod of Al describing his most vivid dreams.

Still waiting on that Neil spin off podcast about crisps. I genuinely would listen to that, CMP crew, if you're reading.

Love our guy Neil, but I also love how he doesn't realise when rock stars are stringing him along in interviews or whatever. Like when he was convinced that some song was about him, had to ask the band years later, and took their jocular response as proof. Also when he was interviewing Slipknot fella on the phone, who "had a car accident" as he was talking to Neil. Yeah sure he did buddy, that's certainly not a wind-up.

Music cue query.

Does anybody know what music is used by Cuddly Ken when he introduces the New Releases section just after The DEEE-troit Spinners number? You only hear a brief snippet of psychedelic sounding rock but it sounds awesome. Probably another library track or maybe even CCS?

Thanks and an inappropriate arm around your shoulder and some innuendo in advance.

That wasn't a real band, it was a sketch on Goodness Gracious Me, and I think his case is pretty much rock solid if you go back and listen to it again.

Ha, yeah, I'm pretty certain that sketch is referencing Neil. They stopped just short of showing Sanjeev Bhaskar tanning a massive packet of Bobby's BBQ Sauce Snack Mix but otherwise....

In reality, it was probably about a month, but still

#58 was being recorded last week (according to Al's last Patreon update), so hopefully we'll be seeing that HFC gif very soon!

I'm jonesing for another episode too. Which is selfish and greedy of me, I know, as it must take Al ages to put these together.

It's because they are so long. In reality, we're getting anything up to four average length podcasts an episode.

I've started watching the TOTP episode in question before listening in preparation, can thoroughly recommend this method. The deferred gratification is worth it as you get extra yuks imagining what the contributors might have to say about some of the acts.

I've been doing this too and it's definitely worthwhile, but I kind of miss not knowing which acts are covered.

I infer from the badge that Shaky is quite camp in how he plays the heterosexual rocker role to such an exaggerated degree. I can see how he was seen as a throwback antidote to the gender bending Human League et al, but it's pantomime.

Elvis originally was more ambiguous in gender and racial terms. He wore eyeliner (a trick borrowed from Tony Curtis) and bought his clothes from stores that catered mainly to black churchgoers like Lansky's.

Isn't the badge from his pre-fame days, early 70s? I think it's most likely an ill-advised backlash against glam.

Incidentally, pop-crazed youngsters, I had a very vivid dream about Simon Bates last night. I think[1] it's an omen that the Bates-signal could be in the sky very soon...

Oct 1980 ep, Taylor and ROCK EXPERT DAAAAAAVID STUUUUUUUUUBS!

Couldn't have come at a better time. I'm in dire need of a scabrous antidote to all this royal arse licking.

Wonder if they could get a whole hour of top quality entertainment out of this guy's attire and attitude:




Oh, of course they can!

Oh jeez, it's that episode where Dave Lee Travis turns the studio floor into a car show, which seems to have the effect of making his hairy libido go off the scale and he's sexually inappropriate throughout, manhandling a disgusted looking Elkie Brooks and demanding "kissy-poo"s from audience members. Yeah, rich pickings for the gang in this one.

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to cheer me up, it's 5 hours of Al, Taylor and Rock Expert David Stubbs verbally eviscerating the Hairy Cornflake. Surely their most broken in TOTP presenter punchbag or is that Edmonds?

This has saved a very depressing weekend. No TOTPs, no Pick of the Pops, no decent telly or radio, weather appalling, pubs still shut. Was considering putting together a petition to get dear old Greggles out of quiz retirement. Thank you Al, you beautiful bald bastard. The year they're covering seems to be an era they all have a natural affinity for.  Mint and indeed, skill.

A ray of sanity breaks through the clouds.  Hosts and vintage are exquisite, and the motor show bollocks on top oh this is going to be one to savour.

Especially enjoyed Taylor's glee about how short the singer of Air Supply is. "I found out his name is Russell, like the noise from the long grass that lets his bandmates know he's approaching."
