Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. In this show we showcase the zany talents of Spike Jones, creator of many novelty songs. He rose to fame during WWII with 'Der Fuehrer's Face' and went on to crave out a niche in musical history. The term 'murdering' refers to what he would do to both popular songs and beloved classical pieces. We play many old favourites: All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth), The William Tell Overture (Beedlebom) and the classic treatments of both Carmen and the Nutcracker Suite. Bring your sense of humour for this one!

Episode Information
Hosted by Matt, Glen and Eddie. In the third part of our dive into Pub Rock we play material from the immediate post-Pub Rock period. Of course, we touch base with Dr. Feelgood (live!) and the Pirates as well. But we also play some of Wilco Johnson's post-Feelgoods career, tip the hat to the Aussies (Saints, Angels) and look at what was to come (Barracudas, Tygers of Pan Tang). We still couldn't fit everything we wanted in, so it looks like part four will be coming soon! Stay tuned if you like your rock a bit grubby!

Cabaret Voltaire: Industrial Dance Party Hosted by Eddie. In this episode I play a selection of epochal Industrial sounds. Cabaret Voltaire were (and are) one of the mainly British electronic bands who founded the musical movement that became known as Industrial Music. Their highly experimental sounds include early use of samples (using tape loops) and home-built synthesisers as well as conventional instrumentation. Their hard-edged beats presage the electronic dance music that was to follow. Some great beats and wild sounds in this one!

Coleman Hawkins - The Bean Hawk Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we present Coleman Hawkins. This American tenor saxophonist is credited with bringing that instrument to prominence within the wider jazz movement in the 1930's and 40's. A biographer stated that prior to 'The Hawk' saxophones made only 'rubbery belches' and mooing sounds. We play a selection of standards and Hawkins own compositions.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. I recently hosted a show of old-school 10-inch vinyls, mainly from the jazz age. This time I'm playing a selection of my more modern 10-inch discs. In the first half of the show I play an eclectic selection; The Pirates (Rockabilly), Fall (spiky indy-rock), Lemonheads (not-so spiky indy pop) and the Tempest (brit-pop). In the second part of the show I play a selection of rock covers (Led Zep, AC/DC) as played by 90's hardcore punk acts; Killdozer, Ritual Device, the Hard-ons (featuring Henry Rollins as a guest vocalist). Something a little bit different, you betcha!

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this show we feature Ben Webster an American tenor saxophonist. He was noted for his beautiful tone (the beautiful) as well as his irascible nature and heavy drinking (the brute). He worked with many of the greatest jazz artists of his day and spent many of his later years in the Netherlands. His great contribution to jazz was to bring the tenor sax into its own as an instrument for soloing in its own right. Check out an artist that never really got the plaudits that he deserved.

Hosted by Eddie. This show is definitely R-rated. The Butthole Surfers are unique. No-one else approaches their manic intensity. They literally exploded into the early 1980's music scene like a *insert disgusting metaphor here*. I'll just list the discs I'll be playing: Locust Abortion Technician, Psychic Powerless Another Man's Sac, Rembrandt Pussyhorse, Widowermaker, Cream Corn From The Socket Of Davis and Live PCPEP. 'Nuff said.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. This edition of the Audio Archive highlights the contribution to Rock Music made by three women in the late 1970's. You have probably heard of Patti Smith but the other two artists I cover here, Ellen Foley and Genya Ravan, are more obscure. It's great rocking stuff and showcases New York when it was dirty, dangerous and fun.

I close the show with the classic Paul Hardcastle song Nineteen. Something for everyone here!
