Samuel hates 666

johnboy 21 February 2007 64

It’s been a while since we poked the bear cage of Samuel Gordon Stewart but he’s posted an in depth comparative analysis of 666 in the morning vs. the charms of John Laws.

“It was 10:45 and I had heard enough. It was the worst 45 minutes of radio I have endured in a looooong time…and that Alex Sloan couldn’t keep a straight face if it was superglued…and she t–a–l–k–s…..s–o…..s–l–o–w–l–y and constantly says um and er. I don’t mind the occasional um and er, but when they become a vital part of every second sentence it is downright annoying.

All the while, Lawsie was focussing on real issues, such as basic services for schools which seem to be sadly lacking in so many places, and the crazy outsourcing system which NSW schools have to go through to get things repaired…adds about 30-40% to the cost of the repair and they end up with the local repair person anyway. (Yes, I had to flick back during the bad music to save my ears).

Now Sam’s dislike for music published after the Berlin Airlift is legendary (he claims to download our Insatiable Banalities podcast and cut out the music before listening to the chat), but why is the minutiae of NSW administration (as delivered by a man proven to sell his opinions to the highest bidder) more intriguing than even the modest charms of Alex Sloan?

Anyway, enjoy.

Bonfire, would a coffee meeting be enough to help you decide whether or not I exist? If you still think that I’m a hoax after that then I will be amazed.

I’ve never said anything stupid and naive: it’s mainly just stupid and idiotic that comes out of my keyboard!

Contributors make stupid naive statements on this site all the time but no one gives a bugger. But if Sam says anything, god help us, the room goes ape-shit!

Hall and Oates?

Excuse me while I spew…

Ari Ari 3:36 pm 23 Feb 07

Hall & Oates rock?????

Wasn’t one of their songs “Out of touch”?

bonfire bonfire 3:32 pm 23 Feb 07

hall and oates rock.

particularly their first three albums.

the 80’s stuff was Ok, but i cant go for that, no i cant go.

although Hall & Oates? Ouch

Nothing wrong with an eclectic taste at all, my random playlists sometimes surprise even me.

I think I used the wrong terminaology anyway. It was more the matter of the Dixie Chicks standing out like dogs’ balls in that little list!

In all honesty folks, in the age of iPods, MP3, MP4, phones with built in music and travelling minstrels, who listens to the radio?(great song by the Sports, 1978) Talkback radio is for either ultra conservative militants the vote for Pauline Hanson (even when she’s not running) or brown cardigan wearing bearded lefties on their way to “save the Botswanian leper rallies”.

Although I must admit that I do miss 4MBS, the classical music station in Brisbane with its fantastic Lunchtime Jazz segment.

OT, I think Icehouse’s early stuff was fantastic, very cutting edge for their time.

Mutley – throw a bit more in the mix liek depeche Mode – Eurythmics – Icehouse – Hall and Oates – pretty much anything – hell I even wear a straw hat and listen to Garth Brooks.

I can go from extreme black/death metal to 80’s/70’s/60’s/50’s/ to country to dixieland jazz to trance/neurotrance.

Soo much great music out there that I dont limit my appreciation to one particular genre.

My favourite song at the moment is Whiskey Lullaby by Brad Paisley – a sad c+w song about.. well ill let you download it.

Favourite Album at the moment is Rebel Meets Rebel – a project between David Allan Coe and the late great “Dimebag” Darrell Lance Abbott. c+w meets texan heavy metal

nothing like a good ecletic taste in music.. on any given day I can be into indie, metal, hip hop, jazz, blues, classical, electronic sometimes I can even stomach some top 40 stuff… I think the only music I don’t stomach is that top 40 gangster rap… no rythym, no musical integrity, the guys can’t even really rap well.

mutley mutley 11:28 am 23 Feb 07

Danman – that’s a bit of an eclectic mix

jb – i have considered that, and believe that the person you spoke to was in fact an actor.

It certainly does…;-)

i notice that sgs is doing a comprehensive review of several stations and is setting up standards eg each station will be review for one hour (and twice) at a random time between 6am and 6pm during weekdays.

Fascinating stuff. Can’t wait for the results.

I long thought the same thing, but I have actually met him and you can hear us talking in an earlier podcast.

bonfire bonfire 9:54 am 23 Feb 07

i read his blog because im convinced sgs does not exist, and it is in fact an elaborate practical joke being played by a group of uni student studying communications.

just a theory however.
