      Very long ranting part of the show where I talk about a night out on the town during which I had a delicious sushi meal, compare it to a night out a few days earlier where I had an explosive (literally) night renting movies at Kim's on St. Mark's, and then reminisce and tell a long childhood story about me and my friend Curtis who skipped school in the eighth grade and rode our bikes a zillion miles in the hot Texas sun, wearing trash bags and colored hair spray, all the way to a movie theater in Dallas - just to see the film "Starstruck." 
       
Starstruck  (film clips)   Options   Angus convinces Jackie to tightrope over a busy intersection in Sydney as a publicity stunt, Jackie performs "Temper, Temper" at the Lizard Lounge and wins the crowd over, Jackie Mullens and the Wombats infiltrate the final "Wow!" talent competition at Sydney Opera House, with Jackie dangling in limbo from a descending stage prop as the crowd and crew jeer her - but of course they end up winning the crowd over, inexplicably nabbing the grand prize and saving the farm (pub), performing "It's The Monkey In Me." Starstruck, dir: Gillian Armstrong, 1982. Cast: Jo Kennedy, Ross O'Donovan, Max Cullen, Pat Evison, John O'May, Phil Judd. More info on this excellent film here, here, and here, view the trailer here.

Vol II" is Brian Turner's 2005 WFMU DJ premium - his second excellent hand-picked collection of between-song banter, radio flubs and rediculous live moments from music stars and "stars," past and present, in front of horrified, jeering (and sometimes rioting) audiences.
