Show With No Name playlist May 13

An exciting week this week. We walked in the studio to find the right wing of the Liberal party have turned their insane eye to regional Victorian community radio stations: a giant sign saying 'Voice FM is now a no obscene language station'.

And not an unwashed copulating Semite in sight.

I asked whether someone has deleted Cold Chisel's Bow River and Lou Reed's Walk on the Wild Side from their constantly browsing computer, used to replace humans in making this thing called radio... I think a well researched letter to the Board is in order, with demands for a a new list of obscenity. Having been a zine publisher back in the 90s and finding out the list of words you're not allowed to put on the front pages of Australian magazines or newspapers, I look forward to embedding the words 'smoo' and 'nunga' in all manner of speech.

Ballarat's old jazz musicians come to play

It's beautiful - finally, the lost Frank Callahan tapes are coming to light, and yes, there's even footage of the classic psychedelic Lal Lal sessions that have been spoken about only in whispers in the teahouses and senior citizen's clubs of B-Town.

We can reveal to you here that yessir, he can boogie. Ladeez and gennilmen... with thanks to one of the longlost Balla-diaspora, a woman known only as the Queen of Rock (there is none higher) - the lost Frank Callahan: the Lal Lal Tapes episode one.
