Great T&T story about a boy who just wants to play Pan... It was considered gangster back in the day????? Came from the discarded Oil Drums of WWII..
there was always drum music in T&T (illegal - due to racism of the colonial UK gov't), but the drum as it is now comes from the oil industry..

@Hughie: But what happens after the monster goes into the cottage? Does he have tea and crumpets?
  11:04am paul:

Don't do it, John!

Sting stands too close to him and chaos ensues.
  11:04am John from Florham park:

@Melinda we must be the same age remember this from middle school dances when they were not playing disco songs

Man, Stewart Copeland is a beast!
  11:06am Brendan:

Love the narrative. Ride the tube into town. Get kicked in the crotch. The the ambiguous ‘meanwhile , back at the loch’ ...
  11:07am SeanG:

Lowe was high?
  11:09am SeanG:

  11:11am melinda:

I think it was a hit, it got a lot of play.

Andy Summers' "Mother" was the best song on that album.
  11:12am melinda:

I’m terrible with lyrics, I never realized what a weird song it was.
  11:12am SeanG:

MTV played that synchronicity II video all the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am steveo'n:

oh hi, i forgot i donated to your show, you must have been doing something inspiring :)
  11:17am SheaB:

Used to say "Shea like in stadium" now fewer people have heard of it.. and if I say "Shea like in butter" there is a creepy connotation.. Love the show, Joe!

Avatar 11:28am Joe McG:

@Shea: Thanks, I'm glad I got it right! @SeanG: Yeah, I think he took more acid than Hawkwind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am fred:

Many thanks Joe for making sure my pledges got credited the way I intended, even though it wasn't to your show. I really appreciate your help

@Pantz play with snakes too:)

@John that kinda stuff goes on not far from where I am. Appalachia has a lot of those fundamental Baptist snake charmers.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Ken From Hyde Park:

I think this set merits the Sinner's Crossroads' seal of approval.
  11:44am John from Florham park:

@Pantzai believe it kinda like deliverance right
Avatar 11:44am Joe McG:

@Ken: I played a track from Kevin's premium to ensure it!
Avatar 11:45am Joe McG:

See you later today, Mark Hurst! I think you should use Ebony Steel Band as your new theme music next summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am Lewis:

Just about to point out Sinner's Crossroads and see that we that point has already been made - Praise the Lord!
  11:46am Brendan:
