Lollards Podcast2 comments • 381 views

The second half of the Lollards season kicks off with an playful hour about toys. Well, at least the toys you can talk about on a Saturday afternoon. Pete Baran is joined by Anna S, Kat Stevens and Pippa Ashton to talk about Barbie mutilation, freaky Japanese collectors dolls and children torturing each other. You know for kicks.

Music comes from Daphne And Celeste, Fergie and Missy Elliott, in Resonance FM’s never ending quest to push back the boundaries of music radio.

Musical Euthenasia with Kat, Pete, Sarah and Magnus.

An update on Kat’s work-in-progress, “Hollyoaks The Musical”, takes the Lollards from overture to immature, around Japanese digi-musicals and South Park, and the musical flops of Superman and Carrie. Chess makes them wonder if perhaps there’s any mileage in a musical based on the works of Abba. Hmm.

They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating, but in this case, the proof of the pudding is in the LISTENING. Because this is a show about puddings, and you have to listen to it to get any nutritional value out of it at all.

Nuncle Carsmile Steve Hewitt welcomes his guests Rebecca Toennessen, Stevie Trousse and Marna Gilligan and wrestle with the great gravy vs custard battle, music comes from Stanley Holloway, Wilco and something that sounds like an army of very, very sad machines.

So nonsense basically, and much misinformation presented as fact as ever. Please feel free to correct us below in the comments.

Apologies for the late arrival of this podcast, technical difficulties combined with having to run it past the Lord Chamberlain delayed the posting.

Tom Ewing, Anna Fielding, Mark Sinker and Pete Baran talk about eyes, lies, Google Street View, elephants in the room and the five blind boys of Alabama called Moe, was Walt Disney a furry, would you fancy Bugs Bunny, why Billy Idol is better than Paul Anka and still have time to talk about sleeve notes and have a WORLD EXCLUSIVE from St Etienne (which we proceed to pretty much talk over – sorry).

So nonsense basically, and much misinformation presented as fact as ever. Please feel free to correct us below in the comments.

Lollards Of Pop: Season Three!

Lollards Podcast2 comments • 97 views

Not only is Freaky Trigger BACKBackback but so is it peripatetic radio offshoot FREAKY TRIGGER AND THE LOLLARDS OF POP on Resonance FM. Broadcasting to ALL OF LONDON on crystal clear FM* on 104.4, webstreaming from the Resonance website and then popping up on here some time afterwards as a podcast. We said the last show would be the LAST SHOW, so discover what it was that made us come back for series three, and if we have jumped the shark.

The first show this weekend on Saturday 2:30pm – 3:30pm is hosted by myself, and I have hand picked guests of a genial and jolly nature. Namely Magnus “Norkmaiden” Anderson, Alix Campbell and Freakytrigger head honcho Tom Ewing himself. Looking way back into the past for this edition expect to hear about ancient cookbooks, superstitions and featuring an ALL NEW THEORY about the medieval world which threatens to shock history depts up and down the land. Silly about the serious, serious about the silly, the Lollards Of Pop are back.

If you want to warm up, here’s a link to the archives.
