Donkey Punch – Thursday 1–3pm on RaW 1251AM

Writing about web page http://www.radio.warwick.ac.uk

This week's Donkey Punch show saw (or heard) the brand new Stevie Wonder come-back single. Being the fan that I am of his work from the early 60s up to Songs in the Key of Life, his last great work, in 1976 I foolishly kidded myself that his new song, which features Prince on guitar and En Vogue on backing vocals, would be a funky beast. Oh how wrong I was. If you listened to the show then you'll know how bad it was. All it served to do was confirm to me that three once great acts were now rubbish. Thankfully they were being rubbish together so that cuts their collective output, even so I was and remain heartbroken. So let us remember Stevie this way

Here's the rest of this week's playlist:

  • Ian Brown – Love Like a Fountain
  • The Jeevas – The Way You Carry On
  • The Chemical Bros. – Believe
  • Simon & Garfunkel – America
  • The Coral – In the Morning
  • New Order – Here to Stay
  • Rachel Stevens – Some Girls
  • British Sea Power – Please Stand Up
  • The Sleepy Jackson – Come to This (Featured Album, 'Lovers')
  • Grand National – Cherry Tree
  • OASIS - LYLA

Our regular soap opera 'The News: on the hour, every hour'

  • Mint Royale feat. Lauren Laverne – Don't Falter
  • Scissor Sisters – Music is the Victim
  • Blur – Death of a Party
  • Belle & Sebastian – The Boy With the Arab Strap
  • Sammy Hager – Baywatch Theme (?!!)
  • Prince – If I Was Your Girlfriend
  • Arctic Monkeys – Still Take You Home
  • Stevie Wonder – Some Shit (I'm almost certain this isn't the real title)
  • The Sleepy Jackson – Miniskirt (appologies for the poor dubbing of the swearing)
  • Beastie Boys – I Don't Know
  • Simon & Garfunkel – a sped up Mrs. Robinson to fill up a minute before the news

Very superstitious? I am now, Stevie. I am now.

  1. Fab choice with the Mint Royale track, love that song! Also, I should really listen to some Jeevas, seeing as they feature my K-S hero, Crispin Mills.

  2. The first album called '1 2 3 4' is better than the second, altho 'cowboys and indians' is good. it's just good fun rock'n'roll. can't complain really

    Sammy Hager is quite possibly the finest musician to walk the earth. Sadly his career did not take off as expected, but it is good to see he will be immortalised in the Baywatch theme. Sammy rang me this morning with a message:

    "Gee, say, Bobbi, can you big up those guys who plugged me on their show?"

    Thanks Donkey Punch

    p.s. Can we have a picture of Gary the monkey soon.

    Can I also point out the dodgy nature of the picture featuring "Really Wild Show" hero Terry Nutkins. If you look at the pic you can see (or not see) that his hand seems to be entering some sort of unidentified furry orifice. Once you see this you wont be able to see Nutkins in the same way ever again, dirty animal fiend! Gary the Monkey…......beware!!!

  5. are you sure his finger is inside the animal? remember that he is missing half of two of his fingers as an otter bit them off when he was a child. that could be why he looks like he is 'entering' the animal.

  6. actually, it does look really dodgy doesn't it?

    ah good point, however, this does not detract from the dodgy nature of this photo, the slimy grin, the animal that is unidentifyable, i cant look at Nutkins in the same way ever again

  8. bobs

    yes, my last point was maent to preceed your previous one

  9. Guys guys guys… I feel you're not using your blog enough to promote RaW's participation in the www.webradioawards.com. We're up for 8 categories I think, and you can vote once from each location every day for the next 40 days…
