I didn't expect a song in catalán!

This song is sort of out o character for the show but I liked it so I thought I'd play it.

I really liked the song. Thanks. I was surprised by the language spoken in the song, one of my country's languages.

Fahrenheit 451. is one of my favorite books ever...

Ray Bradbury was good friends with Rod Serling.. imagine those two hanging out and what they talked about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 1/31/16 3:52am cklequ:

I think i read everything Bradbury wrote when i was in high school after being forced to read one of his short stories by an english teacher.

And i don't care who knows.... I have read books since i graduated.

Jon, just got myself a copy of A Ayler 'Spiritual Unity' anniversary ed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/31/16 3:56am pacific standard simon:

@Jherweg - They began as friends, but Bradbury inevitably had to write a "don't contact me again" letter to Serling because Serling couldn't manage his tendency to "borrow" ideas for stories from others.
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 3:57am Jherweg:

Sweet......love that record!

@pacificstandard Simon er, yes! Unless I've dramatically misread bill hicks and he was an anti-drugs, military industrial complex corporate shill. I really hope not
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/31/16 4:01am pacific standard simon:

I bought a set of bookends that was carved out of the ceiling joists from Ray Bradbury's house. Love 'em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 1/31/16 4:04am cklequ:

I hope that wasn't a load bearing ceiling.

it's true . i saw a picture of you wearing speedos,drinking cosmopolitans in the tasmanian enquirerer er.

Eh, Bernie is my George McGovern, Hillary is my Hubert Humphrey. I could vote for either of them, but I might be more interested in the lost cause of Rand Paul.

John Lydon recently attained the age of 60. I'd bet you he lives past the age of 90.

maybe...in a home with constant nursing care.
- he sounds senile already.
...then again, maybe that's just another of his lies.
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:31am tinkle bear:

'Mega' donations from Australia? Sure you aren't thinking of New Zealand?
Maybe if you ask the US DOJ nicely they'll share some of the money they stole from Kim Dotcom...
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 4:33am Jherweg:

Yeah or the mega upload guy?
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:34am tinkle bear:

yep, that's the one.
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:36am greysquad:

My fave Ray Bradbury book would have to be "Dandelion Wine"... his description of the smell of cut lawns in summer still resonates...
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:38am tinkle bear:

greysquad-- that book is on the reading shelf in our bathroom.
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:39am tinkle bear:

...too bad the cut-lawn smell doesn't permeate the room...
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:43am greysquad:

"our bathroom"? tinkle bear, tell your friend poo bear to eat less meat...
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:45am greysquad:

Junkopia? sorry I missed that! great movie!
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:47am jimbo:

There's an amazing people like us Peel session, which she released as a download, and it has short tracks made up of Peel just saying 'er' and 'um'. His style definitely added a huge amount to his appeal
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 4:47am Simon P:

I have a big box full of cassettes of Peel shows which i edited live so hardly any have his voice on!
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:52am tinkle bear:

greysquad-- good advice. i will pass it on. (not that he'll listen.)
  Sun. 1/31/16 4:54am jimbo:

What a waste Simon! The tapes must be awesome, but you miss out on his 'I'm not sure of that was the right speed' general joyous incompetence
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 4:56am Simon P:

yeah well y'know in the excitement of the moment and all that....I do have a few snippets of the man

I got a second wind and started doing my taxes. The web site just went off-line for maintenance, so I guess I'll try to drift off to sleep now. Stupid taxes!
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:03am jimbo:

Thanks @cklequ ! That's great, I'd forgotten about that. Here's the peel session with all the mumblings http://freemusicarchive.org/music/People_Like_Us/John_Peel_Session_2003/
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:14am tinkle bear:

Jherweg-- no, you cannot go home already.
not until you play an hour's worth of dulcet tones so that Ken from Hyde Park (and, maybe, coelacanth?) can drift peacefully onto the astral plane.
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:16am Jherweg:

What about my peaceful sleep though?
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:18am greysquad:

oh yez... got my ticket for the march 28th faUSt show... actually more looking forward to the jowehead opener...
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:19am tinkle bear:

that is what public transportation is for.
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:19am greysquad:

should be a great combo/show... too bad john bender couldn't get booked..
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:21am Jherweg:

Is John Bender even alive?
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:21am Jherweg:

I'm convinced that John Hughes named the Breakfast Club Character After John Bender?
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:26am Simon P:

Ron Morelli !!
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:26am greysquad:

discogs doesn't mention that he's croaked (yet). Jherweg, if you're at that show (which I'm sure you'll be), you gotta get BT to play that John Bender take on "Rainy day", before they play... It'll be epic!
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:28am Simon P:

Jon, maybe you should do a show called The Final Hour
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:29am Jherweg:

I would prefer a 2 hour format......3 hours is a little much.....
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:37am tinkle bear:

split the shift with nat roe, maybe?
buy him a bag of chips, or something, to sweeten the deal?
Avatar Sun. 1/31/16 5:42am Simon P:

a least you're not an enigma wrapped in a box..or however it goes
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:47am greysquad:

thanks, great show! and I'm gonna check out breakfast club again to see the bender/bender comparison... but I'm guessing that the real "Bender" would be the Ally Sheedy character....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/31/16 5:48am joeray:

Peace and love? Jon, you are an enigma. Thanks for another cool show!
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:52am Marc15:

How about reading the "Decline And Fall Of the Roman Empire"?
  Sun. 1/31/16 5:53am Marc15:

Or "War And Peace"?
