The Paranoid Squirrel ep 777

November 28th, 2020


On this week’s show I apologise for “Bartongate”, still maintain misheard lyrics are correct, discover missing musical files, admit to snubbing a band first time around, believe a song finished another radio show when it didn’t but it should, wonder if you’ve tested positive for Covid 19 would you still need to self Isolate for two weeks if you were going to Dignitas, all to the music of;
Jello Biafra,
Sex Pistols,
Silent Like A Bomb,
Dead Hombres,
Grand Theft Audio,
The Sino Hearts,
Ebola Babies,
The Beatles,
The Ramones,
King of Sweden,
The Hellacopters,
Denis Pauna,
Frank Meyer
and Billie Joe Armstrong.

The Paranoid Squirrel ep 776

November 21st, 2020


Where to I start with this week’s cock ups? Well to be fair there was only one, quite a big one as the wrong Ident was aired for “Compare and Contrast”. I didn’t realise until later on and then proceeded to blame Producer Barton Stacey, who I made cry. Fortunately, due to Convid restrictions (He was shut in the Conservatory so he didn’t have to come into the studio) you can’t hear his wailing, but I certainly could see him gesticulating. I also go old school by taping something off the radio; I bore you with my attempt at being a musician, unearthing 20 year old demos. All set to the wonderful music provided by;
Billy Karloff,
The Ruts,
The Eddies,
CJ Wildheart,
Dead Furies,
Shark Island,
Silent Like A Bomb,
Charlie Benante,
Alice Cooper,
Die Toten Hosen,
The Media,
Vice Squad,
Fly High Michelle
and Scene Killers.

September 12th, 2020


I am struggling to think of another show where you would hear such a cross section of great music all in one programme. Thank Gawd then for the Paranoid Squirrel Rock Show, where over the course of this week’s show you will hear me talk about what books I’ve been reading, about the loss of Ian Mitchell who briefly was in the Bay City Rollers, how a track from The Rollers “Elevator” LP sounds like it could’ve come off Ginger Wildheart’s “Valor Del Corazon” solo album, Bandcamp waving their fee on Friday’s up to the end of the year, the new Hip Priest tracks, the Captain Sensible solo song that has been re-recorded for the Sensible Gray Cells album, the story behind Life Sex & Deaths cover of “White Punks On Dope” and being contacted by a listener in Argentina. All to the soundtrack of;
The Bay City Rollers,
The Rollers,
Silver Receiver,
The Spitfires,
The Hip Priests,
Life, Sex & Death,
The Sensible Gray Cells,

The Paranoid Squirrel ep 759

August 15th, 2020


This week’s episode was very much a last minute thing with me kicking one band I originally said I was going to play down the road to next week’s show. Not only that I had to edit one song in half for the radio version. Fortunately, you will hear it in its entirety right here. All because I was waiting for the new Damned track and was seconding guessing its length. So coming up over the next 60+ minutes you will hear;     
Demolition 23,
Scumbag Millionaires,
Adam West,
Duncan Reid & the Big Heads,
Blitzkrieg Bop,
The New Rochelles,
Warrior Soul,
Killer Hearts,
LA Guns,
The Stooges,
The Damned
and Alex Kane.
