On today’s show:
Josh Kinal talks about All Saints and televised eating contests, Narrelle Harris and Mary Borsellino discuss Robin The Boy Wonder‘s place in culture, Our Almost Fabulous feature looks at Neighbours’ Andrew “Macca” Mackenzie, Glenn Dunks picks some hits from this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival, Toby Sullivan tells us the right way to approach football, and our Crime Against Pop is Buckner & Garcia’s Pac-Man Fever:
You can find the podcast in the usual places or download it directly from here!
Show notes after the jump:
Our musical challenge was “Unexpected Covers” – the playlist:Get The Party Started – Dame Shirley Bassey Tainted Love – Soft Cell Common People – William Shatner My Girl – Pet Shop Boys Hand On Your Heart – Jose Gonzales Against All Odds – Postal Service You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You’re Drunk – West End Girls We Have All The Time In The World – David Arnold & Iggy Pop
Tainted Love was included as an “unexpected” cover in that it’s unexpected that it is a cover – the original was by Gloria Jones back in 1964:
