When Big Joan Sets Up 30th January – Pissing Trigger

On 13th January the great Ronnie Ronalde died aged 91. The man that John Peel described as “one of the great British entertainers” made his name through his uncanny ability to whistle like a bird – a somewhat archaic talent these days but still more impressive than anything Ed Sheeran has ever done. Roy Rogers once complained to him that his whistling made his horse,Trigger urinate involuntarily. The three tracks from his 2002 John Peel session included in this week’s When Big Joan Sets Up may well have the same effect on you.
