Poor Spike’s dad is ‘nae weel’. He’s ‘peely-wally’. He’s somewhat under the weather this week, so the ribald, raucacity of last week is muted. Unsurprisingly, the Messers Nez discuss the recent Imus controversy and whether censorship is the way to go. There’s more “playing silly buggers” from Spike’s elderly computer and an extremely active chatroom. See what you miss when you don’t listen to the live show…? There’s a foray into movie nudity in Hollywood’s early years, a little American Idol, some singing, some limericks and – gulp – more religion.
Oh, and look out for an all-too-brief appearance from Spike’s Mum, too!
Spike’s folks are away home now, so it’s business as usual next week along with, no doubt, drastically lower listening figures.

This week, our hero is joined by his Dad! If you thought Spike was a Bill O’Reilley-bating ‘far-left, secular, progressive, anti-war liberal’, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
There’s probing, personal questions for Dad from the chatroom (“does Spike’s dad like beans?”) and they cover a myriad of politics, the religious ripples caused by September 11, why the news media are obsessed with fluff, reality-show stories over hard news, the fact that the boys can’t mention Spike’s 6th grade teacher’s name without getting the giggles and two “faintly rude” limericks. Warning… there’s language.
All that, and DAVID BECKHAM’S NEEWW HAAIIIRCUT!!!!!!
Spike’s Dad will be back next week. To interact with the show, complain, suggest a topic or limerick or ask Spike’s Dad a question email: TheRageMachine@gmail.com
