RC 175: The Viv and Neil Show (Bonzo Dog Band)

Doo-dah, dada, dog. Radio Clash 175 is a special show which commemorates two great songwriters and performers – that original ginger geezah Vivian Stanshall and the Seventh Python (I bet he hates that term) Neil Innes, the former who sadly died in 1995, and their legacy of arty chaotic jazz/pop/psychedelic silliness and melancholy that probably only the English really get…as much rooted in the 20’s than the 60’s and 70’s, but strange and insane in any timeframe.

    Thanks to your show, I couldn’t get “Canyons Of Your Mind” out of my head. I was singing it for a couple of days at work. In the end, I bought it online. In respect to you, I have kept away from Urban Spaceman, even though I used to sing it in music lessons in Middle School.

    Great – really liked your intro bits – nice edits!
    I did several Bonzo radio specials with some other DJs at KFJC FM (www.kfjc.org) many years ago – so much fun to do it.

    We did them live…. with no computers!
