Tonight. Midnight 'til 2:

One World: Kurt and Bill
Show broadcast on Radio 1 on Friday 26th February 2004

On the 6th April 1994 Kurt Cobain committed suicide. He was 27 years old, a media frenzy ensued......

Less than 6 weeks earlier at 11.20pm on 26th February Bill Hicks died of pancreatic cancer with his parents by his bedside. The laminated memorial card Mrs Hicks handed out to his friends said he was 32 years 2 months and ten days old - his death went largely unreported.

Tonight's One World presents 'Kurt n Bill' - 2 hours devoted purely and simply to the music of Kurt Cobain and the comedy of Bill Hicks...

You can bet there'll be a lot more of Kurt Cobain in a Months time on radio and T.V.

Fail to see how you can link them together though in one programme.

Is anyone listening to this? For some reason I assumed that it would be some kind of documentary, but it sounds like they're going to play the entire Nirvana catalogue interspersed with the odd Hicks clip.

EDIT - a naughty edit at the end of the orange drink routine - no Willie Nelson! They make him say "and that goes for everyone...end of story."

I wish I recorded it. I really enjoyed it, great music and great comedy. Someone's bound to have captured it though, if not here somewhere else.

Any truly rare stuff though, or just stuff that isn't on the videos?

I not a big enough fan of Hicks of Nirvana to know which were the rare bits but there was an interesting recording of Hicks speaking about the Letterman incident on some radio program, recordings of Courtney Love reading out Cobain's suicide note (as well as the occasional comment about it 'stop being such a rock star you fucking asshole') and some recording of Cobain singing some song, I'm guessing this was rare as it was pretty bad quality. They might all be very common though for all I know. Was a good 2 hours of radio though, I thought it would just be a documentary but was glad when they just played various bits of material, Hicks material over looped intros of Nirvana songs and stuff.

Did they mention anything of the "Kurt was murdered" debate? When I first heard that I thought "utter bollocks" but I've read and seen a load of stuff about it now that makes me think otherwise.

Nirvana wise, they only played Opinion as far as i remember.They did play D7 too which was great to hear.Hicks wise there was an exerpt from what sounded like some american chat show with Bill talking about his mothers disscussion of death over the dinner table. (something to do with tumours and ceiling fans.Can't really remember.I were pished.) Dunno if it's online or not.Then...

Nah, there was no mention of that, it was only songs played, no comments or interviews featured. There were a few News storys played and stuff but now mention of that whole murder argument.

I'd love to know what TOCMFIC has seen which convinces him the murder story is real as it seems like a load of attention whores spouting shite to me.  Anyway this crap radio show is repeated now on Radio 1.  It's crap, not a good documentary like they used to do just a load of Nirvana songs mixed with Hicks bits.

Well, not all the time, I've been up all night encoding comedy which seems fairly positive, and I started ttwo threads over the last couple of hours about shows I enjoyed.  Err, I'm negative in this case because the show was a lazy load of rubbish, and Radio 1 used to make excellent documentaries.  I mean, just lazily stitching bits of their stuff together, how is that a fitting tribute to either one?!

Well, it doesn't look like it was trying to be a documentary, it's just a nicely edited 2 hours of comedy and music.  If it was touting itself as a documentary then I'd feel free to piss all over it.  As it stands, it was entertaining enough, not amazing, but definately not shit.

Well to start off with I think Neil should be able to state his opinion of a program without a 'do you like anything?' type comment being made. But I do agree with Mr Flunchy in that I thought it never made itself out to be a documentary. However cheap and easy it was to mix a few songs and stand up bits together, after the initial disapointment of finding out it wasn't a documentary I still found myself really liking it, the music and the comedy was great and I think it was made well. I thought it was a nice combination of Nirvana songs used, and ones which suited a lot of the Hicks material used. And they didn't play Smells like Teen Spirit once.

I know it wasn't setting out to be a documentary, I'm just pointing out that, in the past, Radio 1 did make excellent documentaries, and it's indicative of the general decline of the station that they just lazily chuck a load of clips together these days, rather than set out to take an in-depth look at the work of either Hicks or Cobain.
