Lost Property Office 1: CSI: Max Factor

Lost Property Podcast4 comments • 568 views

Welcome to the new FreakyTrigger podcast (in association with SOAS Radio), a whimsical trip through the lost and found of life. We’ve been thinking of various audio projects for a while since Lollards and Slug Of Time finished, and before anything grand turns up, here is this little flibbertygibbet of a weekly podcast. Your host Pete Baran (that’s me, talking about myself Alan Shearer like in the third person) drags his guests through the cavernous lost property office in SOAS where they discover surprising books, music and items whilst discussing things they have lost along the way.

In the first edition, Hazel Robinson and Magnus Anderson are the first brave guests, testing out the dumb questions, invading the privacy of lost items and finding out how much you can learn from someone from their make-up bag? Live music from Magnus, Young Adult Horror, the Politics of Space and Ballbuster! The photo shows the items discovered, and please use the comments if you recognise anything, if its your make-up bag or you recognise any of the music.

    The song at the end of the podcast is “Dream Life Of Rand McNally” by Jason Mraz

    Good spot. We need to instigate a prize I think for guessing the songs. That said, you have no chance with next weeks show.

    As this is the pilot we welcome any feedback! Particualrly if you have read Jacqueline Hyde.

    I learnt more from Hazel about make-up in a few short minutes than I have in the rest of my life!

    Bernard Sumner plays the melodica on quite a few New Order songs including Your Silent Face and Love Vigilantes. I’ve never seen Damon Albarn play one. The best use of one I saw/heard was by a band called Saloon whom I saw at the Truck festival in 2003.

    Delightful podcast!

    The ‘Ball Buster’ ad appears on Unkle’s ‘Psyence Fiction’ album as “Getting Ahead In The Lucrative Field of Artist Management”, which is probably where moggy knew it from.

    I think you can view the ad itself here:
    (and on youtube obv)
