One Dog, No Listeners

We didn't have the audience we have become accustomed to tonight, and it was hard going doing the show with that in mind. The Olympic closing ceremony blasted us out of the water, so I recommend a visit to our mixcloud to put things right.Sam, the Trent Sound dog, also came in to see us. Penny became a cooing mess for a while but we managed to pull it back. I have to admit he is adorable.

Max Miller 'La-De-Da'
Cypress Hill and Slash 'Paradise City'
Green Day 'I Fought The Law'
Jim Bob 'Mr Blue Sky'
Elbow 'On A Day Like This' (the recording on mixcloud starts at this song for some reason, so you don't miss the joke that I wrote in about 2004 and have used ever since. Penny thought it was funny, but my girlfriend Mandi pointed out that she hasn't heard it a million times. Also, we played this before the BBC played it during the ceremony).
