A bumper "bloody hell, we talked that long?" episode of the Paul And Spike Show, featuring twenty - that's right, TWENTY - minutes viciously slashed from the Radio Six International transmission.
  • Right from the get-go, there's what we in the business call a "false start" whereby we make you think you're listening to one of NPR's extremely helpful advice shows. And maybe you are, we'll never tell.
  • In segment one, starting at 2:10, The Boys tackle that most important of subjects; Paul's nose douche! Yes, it's a Nettipot update! Then, they gently sift through some of the correspondence from the past seven days; one good, one frighteningly authoritarian.
  • At 15:44, the boys don them's banjos and them's gee-tars to cover the week's news in a Pickin' and Grinnin' stylee.
  • This Week In Stuff (at 18 minutes past) runs the gamut, from high cultured literature to a TV show about a guy with a mullet who kills bugs. Really. Oh, and Paul has ditched the hallowed, geek-favourite VLC player in favour of the KM Player for all his video/audio needs. Shocking!
  • At 36 minutes, The Boys have a (psshhewwwwww) FLAASSHBAAACKKKK! (pewpewpew) and review a couple movies of old; Paul's rediscovered George Lucas' "Howard The Duck" and gives it a fascinatingly positive retro review, and Spike has been watching the Pet Shop Boys 1988 movie "It Couldn't Happen Here", which also fares better than anyone expected. What were they THINKING?
  • Oh dear. Some disagreements at 54 minutes in "Over/Under" as the boys discuss the most over-rated and the most under-rated music acts of the 1980s. To say there are some surprises here would be rather a large understatement. Does Paul really compare a heavy metal band to the great composers...?
  • No winners last week in the competition that simply everyone (currently broadcasting) is talking about, "Whoooooooo Is Nicking Spike's Hot Waterrrrrrr?" Can you guess whooooooooo is nicking it this week? And do you know what they're talking about? The new edition is at 1:15:30 - if you know whooooo it is, email the show. No winner last week means that this week is a rollover, so you'll have two haikus written about you, if you can identify the newsmaking water thief.
