- My traumatised childhood #1: Kinder Surprise ad

This was one of the creepiest things I'd ever seen at the time. I wasn't alone on the school playground in being genuinely creeped out by this advert:

Another podcast and lots of other stuff on the way soon.

- The Who at the Beeb

Once you've lived away from your country of birth for a while, the very notion of nationality starts to get a little confusing and you realise that patriotism is faintly ridiculous, nationalism much more so. Nevertheless, I consider it extremely cool that I'm from the same country as this group. The Who recorded approximately a shit load of stuff at the BBC during the 60s, there are some real gems to be had. I've cobbled a few tracks together here to make one hell of a montage. The sound is a bit crap for the first thirty seconds or so, sorry about that, but it picks up thereafter.
