Ep 280: Nasty Shanties

It’s a packed podcast this week as Paul and Eli dive into a range of unusual books and even weirder novelty records! In “Paul’s Page Turners” the gents briefly judge a book by its cover, absorb the wit of 50-year-old toilet graffiti and find out why coffins once had to have armed bodyguards! Sadly, Paul finds room to add a new character. Eli remains unimpressed. Later in the show, “Silverman’s Platter” unearths a strange old 7-inch record recorded by proud Bristolians from the 1970s. There is also the strange case of a rare promotional book and record that not only gives us an odd adventure with Captain Birdseye, but also a collection of frozen food themed shanties. Expect some really bad singing and bloody awful CheapShow tainted shanties. Sadly, Paul finds room to add another new character. Eli is impressed. Eventually!
