    NIce one, very diplomatically handled. It occurred to me after that it might be an awkward question. Seems as if podcasters are all slightly wary of AC, for obvious reasons. When do you cross over that divide and become mainstream/corporate though? Seems like putting four hour daily radio (urghhh) shows on Sirius would be pretty close to the mark. Good company for Stern, Limbaugh et al. Are they trying to convert people away from paying x dollars a month to Sirius or are they wishing to be paid by a corporation like Sirius? I know great podcasters like Madge are doing this, anyway they may reach a wider audience so maybe not all is bad.

    Excellent show (tbc: Punk is Playing at my House)! It’s been too long since I heard some of those tracks! 🙂

    A good anarchy mix which I love (though it’s only 10 seconds long) is on Intro-Inspection (Full length), they’ve mixed Anarchy and Barbie Doll…. If only someone would make a full length tune out of it……….

    (Yeah I know it’s only the intro thats been mixed)

    Great show!

    Great show Tim, I loved the opening tune! 🙂

    Meanwhile back at the farm, I put the helicopter show up for you (see comments under ‘housekeeping’)…

    You shouldn’t hesitate to give your opinion about AC just because he has friends who listen to your show. Being a friend doesn’t mean you automatically agree with everything your friend does…

    thanks for all the nice comments! ;-D

    As regards Adam – I should have also also added that I’ve pretty much covered my attitude to him in previous shows and I dropped it, partly out of respect for Madge and Cindy and co., but also it was getting boring!

    So I’ve not been reticent in tacking it in the past – just I find Adam’s ego gets enough stroking and I don’t want to add to that as he seems to like publicity, good or bad. And to be frank, there’s been nothing to report about and it’s all been really quiet with Podshow and Sirius hasn’t set my world alight (or anyone outside the US!).

    Might talk about the Podshow/Odeo VC round tho, that’s quite important…

    heh, $8.8 million isn’t anything to sneeze at, is it.

    As for respect for moi/co., it’s quite kind of you but not necessary. And yes, I know you’ve expressed your opinion in the past, which I think is why I was surprised you didn’t this time around. We definitely have our opinions too; and though we tend not to be _very_ specific, we don’t hesitate to express them in our podcasts.

    well I actually thought most people would have been bored by it because I used to harp on so about Podshow…and I don’t want to slag Adam off just because in some circles it’s fashionable.

    Thanks for letting me know you’re not bothered; I was slightly reticent because of you and Earworm…and I did really enjoy his guesting on KASS. Shame DSC and what I’ve heard of Podshow isn’t as good as that, sadly he seems to have ‘cleaned up his act’ because of Podshow etc…thus for me making his show sound neutered and less interesting…but your KASS show reminded me what I liked about DSC before Podshow et al. It was a good show.

    And next time you bet I won’t walk on egg shells needlessly 😀

    Hi Tim,

    Great show.

    I think ‘Teen Spirit’ is either Richard Cheese or senor Coconut but I can’t find it by either of them.

    Keep up the good work.

    I’m a new listener and I totally loved the Punk show. The Ska version of Peaches was just brillant, I had a great laugh out of that one.

    I’ve probably listened to episode 40 about five times now. It is that good.

    Please, please keep us posted on London Booted availability. I unfortunately missed it when it was available for download, and I doubt Sony is going to pay U.S. radio stations to play it when the vinyl is released.
