139 Live And Direct!

A new idea this time, a show concentrating on just live tracks, with the stipulation that they must be outstanding, better than the studio versions.  It turns out that quite a lot of tracks qualified, with the assistance of Hugh and Mal, and we can do this again, probably more than once, without repeating tracks or albums.

Hugh and Root Beer were both away, so it was back to the old days of the three original members.

The title was a challenge from me to you to identify what short-lived TV SF show it came from.  Korovev and Hayley Mosteller got it right – it was Max Headroom, that dystopian “20 minutes into the future” show featuring Matt Frewer playing two roles, one in heavy prosthetic makeup, as CGI weren’t that good yet.  It was a good series, very critical of TV advertising, the quest for “ratings” and an elite living in a moral vacuum.  It’s no wonder then that it got canned after 14 episodes.  By an unfortunate coincidence, that’s the same number of episodes that Firefly ran for.

Enough of that.  Again, we had more than 20 listeners, which is encouraging for us – do keep coming back.

Preshow – like the postshow, tracks that didn’t make the cut for the main show but still met the criteria.
