You know when people say, when I say, ‘I’ve a jam packed show’ ? It means ‘There’s a lot of things happening on the show today’. Realistically every show is 60 minutes long, you can’t cram more minutes into an hour but sometimes an hour just isn’t enough.

This week was one of those. Last week I caught up with Pearse McGloughlin in his Idiot Songs guise at the BFI on London’s South Bank. I also had the opportunity to chat to Ben Angel from The Bohemian Embassy.

There definitely wasn’t enough time.. here’s what happened:

1. The London Ear intro
2. Little Comets: Little Italy
3. Chat with Ben Angel from The Bohemian Embassy
4. The Bohemian Embassy: Come and See (Met You In Another Life)
5. Chat with Ben Angel from The Bohemian Embassy (Part 2)
6. The Bohemian Embassy: Look East
7. Liz Lawerence: Health and Safety
8. Broods: Never Gonna Change
9. Chat with Pearse McGloughlin from Idiot Songs
10. Idiot Songs: Nastasya’s Tears
11. Chat with Pearse McGloughlin from Idiot Songs (Part 2)
12. Idiot Songs: Villages of Ether
