Having somehow survived three whole weeks of producing radio shows without being kicked out, Owen Hughes and Paul Rutland are back with the latest bitesize podcast edition of their Bucks101 Radio programme.
Unfortunately, the rules haven’t changed so we still can’t bring you the music from the show. This is a huge shame anyway, of course, but especially so this week as our guest in the studio, Chris Armar, not only talks about his passion for NBA, the NFL and particularly the Super Bowl, but also plays some of his own music for us.
Elsewhere on the show, Owen reviews Zoolander 2 briefly before descending into discussion about Spotlight with Paul, as promised last week. We’ve also got our regular sports round-up and general tom-foolery.
Just one day after broadcast on Bucks101 radio, Owen Hughes and Paul Rutland are back with the latest bitesize podcast edition of their show.
This week, Paul is suffering from some serious, heavy studying over the weekend. After being up all night drinking Lemsip and popping paracetamol like Smarties, he was just about able to crawl into the studio to play through some tracks and round-up the week in sport.
Meanwhile, Owen reviews another documentary in the Movie Review section, albeit one that’s slightly lighter in tone than last week’s My Nazi Legacy. Following its screening through BBC’s Storyville series, Owen discusses The Great Gangster Film Fraud – still available to watch the iPlayer – leading to a conversation about the merits of Storyville in general.
The die is cast again at the end of the show, rolling on the number one, prompting a chat about the very broad topic of ‘television’. Top Gear’s new host and Jeremy Clarkson’s obnoxiousness, as well as the ensuing battle between streaming and traditional TV, are all squeezed into the final section of the show.
Welcome to the first ever episode of Front Row with Owen and Paul!
The podcast is a bite-size edition of their radio show, originally produced for Bucks101 Radio on Thursdays at 6pm. If you miss the live stream of the show, then you’ll be able to catch up on all of the movie reviews, sports round-up and general shenanigans that hosts Owen Hughes and Paul Rutland got up to. As Paul describes, it’s not that we make it up as we go along, but as we go along, we make it up.
Unfortunately, the podcasts will not feature the music that’s played on the radio show – to hear that, you’ll need to make sure you tune in live every Thursday. But we’ll try to make up for that with a bit of extra chat on the podcast that you won’t get on the radio show. Alternatively of course, you can use the YouTube links below to listen to the songs at your own leisure!
