Sometimes when we don’t plan, an episode completes with all sorts of chat. Hertz Van Rental is not a Dutch footballer! We talk about our health checks and regimes. Find out why El Tele is sentenced to read Ian MacDonald’s Beatles book five times.
El Tele goes to the theatre twice (a pantomime and pop-scientist Brian Cox’s latest show) and gets back into Arrested Development. The Captain reviews family-oriented Addams Family spinoff Wednesday, commenting on the viral spread of another old pop song, and the Scott Walker documentary 30 Century Man.
We speculate on the musical direction Jimi Hendrix would have moved in, and we say goodbye to Christine McVie, Wilko Johnson, Hamish Kilgour and Kirstie Alley. And we’d like to know examples of music you dismissed at the time it came out, but came to love in later years.
