Freaky Trigger and the Lollards of Pop – Series 2, Week 2 (Pre-Record information)

Lollards Podcast4 comments • 499 views

Hello everyone! Its Wednesday, its 7pm so harken up to the sweet sounds of Saltarello drifting across your Resonance airwaves. EXCEPT YOU WON’T! Because today is NO MUSIC DAY as decreed by Bulldog Drummond and his trusty service revolver, and thus we will not be playing any music AT ALL tonight. At least one of our contributors is probably happy (Tanya!).

Anyway, we have decided to comply with this ban, but in a 21st C rebellion sort of way we will leave you the bits and bobs for you to cut and paste your own show together the way Mom would have made it. Thus at 7pm we suggest you turn on the radio and play the first track below – (Saltarello the FTATLOP Theme). Fade when we start talking.

THEN when we instruct you, AND NOT BEFORE, play Track 1. This is Tom’s track
THEN when we instruct you, AND NOT BEFORE, play Track 2. This is Sarah’s track.
THEN when we instruct you, AND NOT BEFORE (but safe bet it will be near the end of the show) play track 3, the UK’s midweek illegally downloaded number one.

I daresay we will knit it all together too in a bumper edition, like you would expect, but tonight you will will be priviliged to hear snippits of the “Behind The Scenes” conversations we have when the music is playing. So join me you mumbling host Peter Baran, my scintillating guests Alix Campbell, Sarah Clarke and Tom Ewing plus special guest Tanya Headon and a letter from Tajikistan (not forgetting ace nobsman Rob Brennan on the ace nobs) at 7pm on Resonance 104.4 for Freaky Trigger And The Lollards Of ???

Sea’s Got Claws

Important scientific breakthrough: man-size sea scorpion found.

Dr Braddy thinks the large scales may have had a lot to do with the absence early on of vertebrate predators. As they came on the scene, these animals would have eaten all the biggest prey specimens.

“The fact that you are big means you are more likely to be seen and to be taken for a tastier morsel,” he told BBC News. “Evolution will not select for large size; you want to be small so you can hide away. Even so, if you were caught by one of these things at sea you would most likely prefer the option of drowning rather than having it get you.”

When asked what a survival strategy against Jaekelopterus rhenaniae might have been, Dr Braddy was unequivocal. “Your best bet would be to shout “NOOOOOOOOOO!” very loudly
