#BumLike, Wee Free Memories & What Would The Potato People Think?

Show broadcast on 12 January 2019

It was a rather bumsentric show today but don't let that deter you! It's full to the brim with John and Elis classics. Clarkson declares war on modern day music and Catfish & the Bottom-men in the paper review, friendships are ruined in the Shamewell and the guys take on another of your made up games.

Podcast intro

A PCD cleaned up Richard Ashcroft's wee.

As requested in last week's podcast intro, some suggestions for a hobby for John have been sent in but he needs to strike another option off the board: addictive computer / iPhone games are a no-go.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, honorary warrant officer of the Colwyn Bay sea cadets. After a donation of 400 buckets and spades to the group, leader Roy Parry-Jones said, "We are happy to bestow this honour on him though he has grossly misunderstood what it is we do.""

Conversations and riffs

John and Elis post close-up pictures of a part of their body that is #BumLike but isn't their bum and listeners vote on which is the rudest.

Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review

Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.

Big royalties due to the main recipient of the Freddie Mercury estate following the Bohemian Rhapsody film. John guesses the wealth of May, Taylor and Deacon. Clarkson's Hyperbole: Music is over - Catfish and the Bottom-men? No thanks.

John's Shame Well

John frees another listener of their shame.

Literally pissing on somebody else's memories while staying over at their house.

Welsh Word of the Week

Elis picks out a curious Welsh word.

'Gweithiol (?) tatws' = 'Potato people' (derived from 'working class' and 'Potato')

The Potato Potato Years

A trip down memory lane to a classic game of 'Potato Potato' from yesteryear.

The Potato Potato Years goes back to 17 March 2018.

Made-Up Games

Listeners suggest made-up games that Elis and John can play.

The Name Game: Players have to guess how many babies born in 2017 were given a certain name e.g. John, Elis, Brian, etc.

The 'Keep It Session' Sessions

A special section at the end of the podcast for music recommendations.

The four-disc album 'Leather' by Frank Zappa (which has a complicated release history) (John)
