A new mishnah! Taking a vow to protect yourself from thugs who you feel are putting you in danger, and you take a vow to protect yourself. With a machloket between Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai, how far that goes. Plus, the law of the land is the law (assuming that doesn't mean laws made against Judaism). Also, another mishnah! The need to redeem saplings (for example) that have been consecrated - with various parameters. Plus, the vows people take in a time of need - like, the protect the saplings, plus the case of the tallit. Namely, promises made as recompense for getting saved.

Author Brian Sallerson leads Ray and Markus through the path he took to writing his first book, Island Music: The History Of AIR Studios Montserrat, an essential history of an important recording environment in paradise! A unique jewel in its time, AIR Montserrat, built and run by Sir George Martin, as part of the era of destination studios, has fascinated many, including Markus and Ray.How and why Brian came to the project via an epiphany of sorts is discussed, and he explains how he went from looking into Martin's Caribbean recording oasis to visiting it in its current state. Beyond the glitz and glamour, he found the deeper stories of the studio; it's equipment and construction challenges, and most importantly, the people. Whether they worked at the studio or not, the people of the island made every artist's journey a better experience. Brian also explains how the island and its people became the main character of his book. Find Brian's book in whichever format you need, using the links below:Color paperback:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BGNCDKSQ?ref_=cm_sw_r_cp_ud_dp_S7986K4ZBP6J3HJXA1JMBlack & white paperback: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BGNDTM9N?ref_=cm_sw_r_cp_ud_dp_1FCHT93VDTXJC4YHH7SPKindle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BGJMJPT9?ref_=cm_sw_r_cp_ud_dp_B2D97E64M189VWP0Q43FWe suggest that you also visit Brian's web site for more on him, and his amazing adventure!Soooo, let's get back to paradise!We love our sponsors!!!

This week, Pop Screen is taking you to Spatula City with this episode about America's pre-eminent polka-crazed pop parodist "Weird Al" Yankovic and his 1989 film UHF. Prior to this month's parody biopic Weird - in which he's played by Daniel Radcliffe, in Radcliffe's second era-defining role after Swiss Army Man - this was Al's only major motion picture. But that still leaves decades of recordings to discuss, and that's why Al superfan Jeff Pizek is back on the podcast to help bewildered Briton Graham get to the meaning of Al. Along the way, we discuss the film's inspired casting - including a chance to appreciate the comedic skills of a couple of people who, let's say, don't get the roles they used to? For very specific reasons? - its connection to The Simpsons, its vision of small-town America, and indeed the vexed question of where UHF is actually set. Is it a small town at all? We also pose a question about Dire Straits's Money for Nothing video which we forget to answer on the podcast, so let's do it here: Steve Barron. You're welcome. If you want to keep us making podcasts with this kind of polish and professionalism, I guess, you can donate to our Patreon where you get an exclusive episode every month. The next one comes out in early December, and it's a two-parter... You'll also get Rob's reviews of great Asian movies that have been overlooked by UK distributors, and Graham's twice-weekly Doctor Who reviews.

Face Dances is the ninth studio album from the Who, and the first release after the death of drummer Keith Moon three years earlier.  During those three years the Who would release the film Quadrophenia and the concert retrospective film The Kids Are Alright.  Front man Roger Daltry would try out acting, and Pete Townshend would release his second solo studio album.  When the group got back together for Face Dances, Phil Collins expressed an interest in joining the band.  However, Kenny Jones (Small Faces, Faces) had already been asked to join.  John “Rabbit” Bundrick also contributed keyboard work on this album, and would eventually join as a full time member of the Who.  These joined previous members Daltry, Townshend, and bassist John Entwistle.  The album was highly anticipated, and was a commercial success, reaching number 4 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and number 2 on the UK Albums chart.  Critical reviews were mixed at the time, and the band has expressed some friction with producer Bill Szymczyk who conducted the final mixing without the full band's input.  Regardless, the album is a staple of early 80's rock and many of the songs have achieved a timelessness about them.Brian brings us this album for today's podcast. You Better You BetThe first single and lead-off track to the album was a staple of the new cable station - MTV.  It was the Who's last top 20 single, reaching number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.  Townshend developed the song during a period of clubbing with the daughter of a friend.  The video was a black and white studio session.  Don't Let Go the CoatThis deeper cut was the second single, and was inspired by Townshend's guru Meher Baba and his statement that his followers “hang fast to the hem of my robe,” meaning to stay true to his teachings.  It also may have been inspired by Townshend's parents who would pick him up after his binges on drugs and alcohol.The Quiet OneBassist John Entwistle takes an unusual turn as lead singer on this self-referential deep cut.  It was the B-side of the single “You Better You Bet.”  Entwisle said it was a song trying to explain that he wasn't really quiet, but that he started being quiet and got stuck in the pigeon hole of that label.Another Tricky Day“This is no social crisis, just another tricky day for you...fella!”   John Bundrick inspired this song, and it claims that what we're going through is nothing unique, but is just another tricky day.  The song is the final track on the album, and the video is in the same style as the first single - a black and white studio session. ENTERTAINMENT TRACK:Main theme from the television series “Dynasty” John Forsythe, Linda Evans, and Joan Collins starred in this prime time soap opera. STAFF PICKS:Skateaway by Dire Straits Bruce brings us a song about a girl who skates around the city, ticking off the drivers, weaving in and out of traffic, and listening to the local rock and roll station on her headphones.  This is the lead single from the Dire Straits album Making Movies,  and the album title is pulled from the lyrics of this song.Precious to Me  by Phil SeymourDrummer, singer-songwriter, and guitarist Phil Seymour wrote this song with a throwback doo-wop feel.  This is the first single from his first solo album.  It hit number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.  Seymour also contributed backing vocals to Tom Petty's “American Girl” and “Breakdown.”He Can't Love You by the Michael Staley Band Wayne features a one hit wonder featuring saxophonist and E. Street Band member Clarence Clemons.  It made it to number 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was the 40th song played on MTV.  The Michael Stanley Band is big regionally in Ohio.I Love a Rainy Night by Eddie RabbitBrian's staff pick is a crossover country hit.  It hit the top of both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country charts.  It describes the feeling that comes from a good rain at night.  Rabbit started writing the song in the 60's, but didn't develop it until this album.   INSTRUMENTAL TRACK:Toccata by SkyThis prog rock group covers the classical piece "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" by J.S. Bach made it on the British singles charts.

Break out your accordion and your Hawaiian shirt, because this week, Justin has written six trivia questions all (sort of) about “Weird Al” Yankovic! We also get into discussions of pulp novels, a classic sitcom, and, of course, the legend himself.2:46: Q1 (Music): “Weird Al” Yankovic is one of only five acts with a Billboard Top 40 hit in four different decades.  Name any of these hits – one a Michael Jackson parody, one a grunge gag, one a self-deprecating hip-hop bop, and one a favorite of pedantic English teachers.10:52: Q2 (Everything Else): In his parody of a song by Coolio (rest in peace), which was in turn adapted from a Stevie Wonder song, what Anabaptist church does Al lampoon?17:26: Q3 (Sports & Games): “Sports Song” is Al's parody of what type of song that is most associated with college football, specific examples of which are usually associated with a particular school?25:45: Q4 (Times & Places): In “Grapefruit Diet”, Al parodies a song by swing band Cherry Poppin' Daddies, which in turn shares its name with what instance of racial violence in Los Angeles in June, 1943?30:34: Q5 (Arts & Literature): Al covered the theme song of the 1967 animated series George of the Jungle, which was originally inspired by a character by what American author?36:27: Q6 (Movies & TV): In his version of Dire Straits' “Money for Nothing”, Al – for whatever reason – just replaces the lyrics with those of “The Ballad of Jed Clampett”, the theme song from what TV show?Theme music: "Thinking it Over" by Lee Rosevere, licensed under CC BY 2.0E-Mail: quizandhers@gmail.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/quizandhers/Twitter: https://twitter.com/quizandhersInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/quizandhers/3 Beers In Podcast: https://www.3beersinpodcast.com/Moxie on Twitter: @brainonfactspod

Barry, Abigail, and special guest Jon Carroll (The Starland Vocal Band) discuss Jon's musical past, present, and future and review three of his recent singles: Today (Not Tomorrow), (You Gotta) Stand Up!, and Rich Man's Daughter. Jon and Barry met in the wonderful Patreon community of Stand Up! with Pete Dominick. Jon recalled some of his favorite tracks from his youth: Mahalia Jackson's If I Can Help Somebody and The Chimes' Let Your Hair Down, and the track that made his mother appreciate soul music: Brook Benton's Rainy Night in Georgia. Jon also remembers where he was the first time he ever heard Dire Straits' Money For Nothing. Jon suggested we listen to Harry Nilsson's Nilsson Sings Newman… so we added it to our Virtual Jukebox! Jon listened to our episode on The Black Crowes! He thought we should have compared the Crowes to Faces or Humble Pie instead of to The Rolling Stones (no one is safe!). Follow Jon on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube for information about his upcoming album!
