A brief word of warning about this week's BWTB.  It has explicit moments that may not be suitable for all listeners.  It has an e label in i tunes due to a bit of language as we were at the Renaissance Fair last week and this week we present some of the Ren fair musicicians we uncovered.  We appologize in advance if we offend.  Special thanks to The Merry Wives of Windsor and the Poxy Bogarts for allowing us to use their music to give listeners a tast of a true Southern California classic.  If there are Ren fairs in your part of the world or country not only do we strongly suggest you attend if it's up your alley we'd like to hear about them.  There is a show this week as well and we start as always with The lives of Harry Lime from April 11 of 1952.  Harry travels all over Europe and Havannah to uncover a mysterious gentleman's past.  The episode is entitled Man of Mystery.  Then in This Sceptred Isle we'll leawrn about the real seventeenth century aka what life was like for the real common English.  We'll move on to Dad's army and listen to A Soldier's Farewell.  Mannering takes what Charles Boyier says seriously about Napoleon.  We'll conclude with Mike Chapter 8 read by our friend across the pond John Lingard.  A row happens and while Mike is not involved ... he knows about it.  Enjoy.
