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.
You can join Owen and Paul again for the live Bucks101 broadcast of Front Row on Thursdays at 6pm. Until then, enjoy the podcast!
