Excellent news, thanks DCT.

I also now have four episodes kindly donated by madhair, so it would be great to have a good chunk of this archived.

Likewise - please PM me if you can get me the Shock Videos in circulation for the archive. I had them, but my harddrive died.

Also been digging around in some old DVDrs and I've found what looks like a complete run of unedited 6Music shows from 2011 (and a handful from 2007), would you be interested in those as well Retinend?

Currently converting a 3 hour tape of Shock Video to digital...

"If I see one more nipple I think I'll be violently sick all over the voiceover booth....MAKE IT STOP PLEASE MAKE IT STOP...my life is being destroyed by this SHITTY programme"

"LADYBOLLOCKS AH....Meanwhile"

"My sexy feeling is going away and being replaced with fear."

"My Chris Tarrant impression is pretty good, don't you think?"
"No."

"YOUR FRIENDS DON'T KNOW SHIT FROM SHINOLA YOU LITTLE PRAT"

It's very odd to watch this with the awareness that this is 20 years old.

You beauty. Please count me in on any and all Shock Video PM action!

So the tape had two and a half episodes on it, and then is followed by some odd shite from Men & Motors. Not too bad then! I’m still figuring out the VHS tech so it’s currently 4gb, so once I’ve sorted it out I’ll let you know.

I'm feeling a bit shit at the moment, so I decided to lift my meagre spirits by listening again to episode #29, the one in which Louis sings Yes Sir, I Can Boogie in his ridiculous falsetto.

It never fails to make me laugh like a twat, but I just love their rapport in general. I'd forgotten about the very funny bit earlier in the episode where Buckles affectionately mocks Louis for his detached and 'robotic' interviewing style: "Meaning? Who was that man you were speaking to? Where are you going to now?" To which Louis deadpans, "You mean, 'Why is there water coming from your eyes?', that sort of thing?"

Louis is such a funny fella.

I really enjoyed his audiobook Gotta Get Theroux This, once it got past the early life/school stuff. Worth a shout if you’re a fan of Louis.

It's very good, yes, I enjoyed reading it over Christmas. He's commendably honest about his various foibles.

Have you heard his episode of Off Menu, Ballad? Another podcast appearance where he gives his goofy side free reign.

I know we've all said this before, but I now find it quite difficult to watch Louis' resolutely serious documentaries about terribly sad things, not because of the subject matter, but because I'm all too aware that Louis is a very funny, silly person underneath that implacable surface demeanour.

"As I left John's crack den for the final time, my thoughts turned to camp Eurodisco hits from the 1970s."

I did exactly the same thing a couple of weeks ago; the same episode, just because I needed a little lift.

The two of them are my favourite podcast pairing.

That was great, non capisco, ta for the recommendation! Louis talking nonsense in a genteel Texan accent is inherently amusing.

The dream team. It's always so cheering whenever a new Theroux episode pops up.

Damn right. I agree; always love listening to that duo.

The one a year-ish ago(?) wherein they discussed Marky Mark's daily routine killed me.

Also interesting to hear the call-ins, as their audience seems to have been a lot more working class on XFN than it was on 6Music, and maybe it's just me but you can sense a bit of a culture clash.

On RHLSTP, Adam Buxton admitted that some of the XFM callers were actually their mates pretending to be listeners, as no one would call in. They then had to stop doing that at the BBC due to stricter guidelines.

That said, I sincerely hope that Pete was real (skip to 3:23):

Yeah, l've been going back to watch old my all comedy favourites lately to get through lockdown, glad this gave your spirits a bit of a lift and hope you're feeling better soon.

The biggest Louis/Buckles delight aside from 'Yes Sir, I Can Boogie' was that episode where they riff on the vocal fry of US podcast hosts and how the bloke who narrated 'S-Town' always sounded like he was about to burst into tears at the end of every sentence. I was so gratified someone else had noticed the latter as it drove me mad listening to that series.

And then they started doing impressions of the engineer.

"That was great, Louis. Can we get one more for safety?"

Yes, that's possibly my favourite ever Adam Buxton Podcast moment. I've found those This American Life podcasts uncanny and frustrating for years and they managed to perfectly identify exactly why.

His Squarespace ads taking the piss out of what’s his name from The Daily is also brilliant. Note-perfect satire, while also functioning as an advert.

Any idea what ep this was? I have no memory of it and think maybe there’s a Louis/Adam podcast I missed?

Episode 29 I believe, about an hour in.

EDIT: Oops, misread. 29 is where the Boogie riff is featured.

Episode 49. It's in the second half of the podcast I think.
