When Big Joan Sets Up 19/8/10 – Now Reduced to Stealing Ideas From Radio 2

We’re not above the petty theft of intellectual property on When Big Joan Sets Up and so we’ve nicked an idea from Brian Matthew’s Sounds of the Sixties on Radio 2. A fine programme, if only for the fact that for every cracking Small Faces album track and Northern Soul stomper that he plays,there’s a shit Petula Clark b-side which provides excellent ammunition against the “they don’t write them like they used to” brigade. (The answer to this question, by the way is “Yes they do, you just stopped listening and started buying fucking Jamie Cullum CD’s from Asda”)

Anyway, Bri does an unending A-Z of The Beatles, so I thought we’d do an A-Z of The Fall which started this week with the fine “Australians In Europe”.

Next week, snooker on the radio. Quack quack oops.

    I discovered that Jo Good on 6Music is doing a featured called Old, New, Borrowed & Blue last week. Coincidence? I think not.

    Oh, and in other non-BCB related despatches, answer your ruddy text messages, you ignorant pig.
