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.
