It’s called a headband. Oops.

This week we move away from a podcast over to our new venture! We’re proud to announce that we’re going to be starting our very own biker gang. The Decorative Vegetable Biker Gang will be staring operation in the next week in the downtown Antarctica. It’s Stardrive, written by Jim Follett and aired on October 19, 1981.

Thanks for the correction on personal in last week’s episode comment(Traitor). Damn auto-correct.

I didn’t know the word ‘gook’ was a bad word by the way.

Had to look up the word ‘gook’ in my dictionary. It is a bad word referring to people from a far eastern country. Must be out of use. I think the word ‘punk’ would have been a better word. Surprised it got past the BBC censors going out at 7.20pm on a Monday night.
