Podcast 322 – Playing Pink Floyd Snap, reading old music papers and telling Alexa to button it

In a packed programme David and Mark continue their quest to second-guess Amazon’s mysterious lady DJ, remember the man who used to buy the Beatles’ cars, look at how Pink Floyd’s investment problems led to their embrace of disco, read out some small ads from old music papers, wonder whether rock music without an audience is really worth the trouble and recite the names of our new Patreons in a very exciting new way.

  1. On the subject of Pink Floyd and their investments Nick Mason is doing OK. In 1977 he spent £35,000 of his royalties on a 1962 Ferrari 250GTO which I imagine would have been considered insane by most people at that time. He still owns it and it is now worth over £30m.

  2. I saw one of those poorly attended Radio KAOS shows in ‘87 and it did show that the auteur theory didn’t put butts in seats. But for later tours, Roger Waters has built up his name recognition enormously, mostly by performing The Wall in arenas and putting his own name in that scrawly Pink Floyd font.
