Backhand Smash

Cor, blimey! It’s only another season of…
Something Completely Different! That’s right: Nick Mason, Tony Besselink and Tom Needham proudly returned to the airwaves this past Saturday evening with another round of outthere shenanigans in store. This first episode of the new series featured a renewed Hard Task Masters tournament, the first challenge providing plenty of venom between presenters. We also discussed Tony’s stint on Channel 31, debuted our Saturday evening news bulletin and brainstormed ways to improve everything from libraries to public pools. In our new supersized timeslot of 7pm-8:30pm, you can bet this was one jam-packed affair. You can relive all the action right here, with a stream/download of the show for your listening pleasure. (Lo-fi recording, folks – fingers crossed everything’s back to normal next week!)

We can confirm the rumours: music is indeed an essential component of Something Completely Different. Here’s a list of all the songs we gave a spin this episode…
PLAYLIST: Season Three, Episode One
Kate Nash – Paris
Los Campesinos! – We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
Hungry Kids Of Hungary –  Coming Around
Grouplove – Tongue Tied
Foster The People – Don’t Stop

We’ve kicked off a brand new season in style and invite you to join us over the coming weeks for what’s bound to be fun aplenty. Expect less of the same from the new, super-sized season of Something Completely Different – continuing next Saturday evening, 7pm – 8:30pm right here on 90.7 SYN FM. Catch you then!
