Podcast 382 – on Jagger’s ropey new single and what made the Stones a dance band

A world-put-to-rights-special that tells the story of the man who hid in a crate on a three-day flight with only a book of Beatles song lyrics for entertainment, looks at the stupidity of 19 year-olds, considers Rob Lowe’s belief that “there’s no point in being famous today”, predicts that CDs will become as treasured and collectable as vinyl, and wonders if musicians could still play if as pissed as they claimed to be. Also includes Shit-faced Shakespeare and a round of Song Title By the World’s Most Pretentious Band or Artwork By Damien Hirst?
