Darts is TELEVISED? That must be as exciting as televised bowling or golf.

Um… that should be ‘Lipstick’ not ‘Lipstick Killer’ for the Buzzcocks track.

Darts on the telly is magical!

Just visit youtube and search for Jocky Wilson!!!

Magical? Notsomuch for me, but the podcast is magical, as was your singing, JC! Enjoyed this one.

James, loved that intro. You had me laughing out loud at the scary HH band.

I think my favorite song was Suede’s, though. Thanks, Kevin.

John – I’ve fixed that .. sorry!

I’ve been thinking that after these 30 years, it would be wonderful to have nothing to do but scuba dive, snorkel, and get high.

Nat- It doesn’t sound like a bad gig at all :). And I agree, the podcast is magical.

JC- I really hope you sing to us some more.

And I hope Tricia has a wonderful trip!

I was so curious to see how this one would turn out… great as always. Loved that Half Man Half Biscuit especially.

Thanks, Greer! I haven’t had a listen….saving it for my flight to your neck of the woods…SF tomorrow. On the way….

Playlist looks most excellent all. Can’t wait to listen.

Dart Art most excellent! 180! WOOT!


Pray explain…..

woot–kind of like, whoo hoo!! an exclamation of excitement. here’s a more detailed definition:

I love the podcast but I hate FiL’s characters. Are they supposed to be funny?

Simon, we love our contrasty music and intros. ALL of them. And FiL is especially fun.
