I just realized that I could listen to your show in 2 hours and 19 minutes, except that I'll probably be asleep. So I guess I'll listen to last week's show.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19am Scott67:

Brian, Darren played a song with a chorus of Cunts, just after midnight. You'll be right mate. We'll say it was "fatigue"!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:19am Paulo AD:

Scotty can you do me a favour. Keep your eye out for a first edition saints album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Scott67:

Paulo, with do mate. Will put the word out in my miniscule network of music geeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25am Scott67:

For the record, I didn't even notice a fucken foul word?
I must be habituated to being an adult, & not giving a shit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am coelacanth∅:

i guess we'll find out within a few years what the government has up it's sleeve...how they plan to use the fear they intend to and will instill in the masses.

Indeed Wales tonight, I'm not confident though. But if Hungary is an example we could do well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am Brian D:

France were lucky to get the draw, Paulo.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:35am Paulo AD:

Grrrr... Sorry Stevie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38am Scott67:

Okay! I'm free to type again, after an ex-ge, still dear friend phoned while she was cooking... while I was cooking. To de brief about the unsatisfying weekend away she had. That I had fed her Cat for. And when I referred to something about what she'd experienced. I was curtly reminded, "it's not about you Scott"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am Scott67:

G'day Pabs! 🍺😎🤙

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:50am Paulo AD:

I was in Peru this one time and had to get on a 36 hour bus trip so instead of eating local I thought it would be sensible to have a pizza........ I thought I was going to die from shitting myself to death on that bus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51am squidbeak:

Good morning you lovely peoples
Avatar 5:51am Heidee:

Good morning, lovely squidbeak!
Avatar 🗒 5:52am Pablexa™:

@Paulo When I take Mrs Pabs home to the UK, she knows never to eat at the after hours beef burger stand ever again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Scott67:

Paulo, lesson one, always eat local dishes when in doubt. I am safe, my kitchen looks like the Skip out back of a Peruvian Bus Depot. So I'm virtually immune to all I throw in myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54am squidbeak:

Good morning Heidee!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:54am Paulo AD:

Hi squidbeak

Pabs, that is a problem haha just get a kebab and be done with it. Though my wife does love a danger dog when we go back to LA
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:55am Paulo AD:

Scott I have actuall eaten in on of those places haha it might have been Bolivia though🤔🤔🤔🤔
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:55am Paulo AD:

This is the most miles Davis I've ever listened too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56am Brian D:

Happy to help you set a new record, Paulo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Scott67:

I just imagined this chook was a well hung Pheasant from the Scullery of my Manor. Certainly was tender. Pre-digested perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am squidbeak:

Hi Paulo, oof, kebab...breakfast...
Avatar 5:57am Heidee:

Brian, thank you for a superb show! Loved the chatting as well! See you folks! x
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:58am Paulo AD:

I'm starving. Unfortunately there is no British style kebabs here, which is mental considering the amount of ex pats here
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:58am Paulo AD:

Bloody hell, look at the time. Yes, great show Brian loved it
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:58am Paulo AD:

Jury is still out on miles for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Scott67:

Jazz is like booze. I don't drink it by choice. But if I'm already wasted, I will drink it if it's there.
