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 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.

The Michael Monroe Band,
The Sensible Gray Cells,
Professor and the Madman,
Thee Acid Tongue,
