Shakespeare once said, “If music be the food of love play on,” and if you love music, you’ll love what we have this week.  First some good news.  I’m not going to talk very much.  It’s because we’ll be listening to “Amadeus,” by Peter Shafer but before we do we’ll be looking at Mozart through some of his best music along with James Nochte from July 2, 2007.  “Amadeus,” is from 2006 and stars Paul Schofield as Salieri and Simon Callow as Mozart.  Please enjoy.  A slight word of warning.  The play does contain some language and scenes that should not be listened to by all.  My friend Scott over in Disney Indiana when he promotes the show says it like this “Keep the little ears covered,” however, this is something they too will appreciate in twenty years.  Enjoy.

               As we begin our 454th get together, we begin going through the request vault.  While it is dusty and sadly not used enough, we thought it high time to honor our friend Julie Anne with a long over do request.  So Julie Anne after we study the work of Heyden in the twentieth episode of The Making Of Music, a nice relaxing start to the show, it’s back to Portsmouth fortwo episodes of Navy Lark.  We’re in series 9 and its episodes 6 and 7.  After a full hour of adventure and mayhem in Portsmouth Harbor, it’s time to revisit our old friend The Saint and listen to the 1995 adaptation of The Saint Plays with Fire.  Alas it’s mono, but hey it’s great.  Please enjoy.

To true Brunch listeners John Lingard needs no introduction.  However if your new to the show or you like reaading things about other people we're goiong to give John Lingard an introductin anyway.  In 2009 during one of Matt's many ramblings as usual Matt got something wrong.  A Listener emailed the show to kindly correct Matt on his infality and what do you know?  A friendship struck.  John began appearing annually to discuss the state of Britain every year around the holidays and in 2015 actually flew to America to accompany Matt and Maria to their first NAB convention in Las Vegas.  While Nab has invited them all back they've also increased their prices.  In 2016 John did two wonderful things for the show.  First he co hosted an episode while Matt and Maria were on their honeymoon but he also flew back to America to take part in the long planned wedding of Matt and Maria.  Now it's their turn to fly to England to vissit him.  Oncce Texas is over it's on the trip agenda.  John has kept us pretty current with our shows so Making Of Music the prunes and yes even Earthsearch is back but ... knowing John there may be a few Easter eggs hiding in Brunch Studio UK.  We hope you enjoy and we'll see you next week with full reports from Texas.  Questions or comments for John should go to brunchwitthebrits@gmail.com and we'll make sure he gets them.

So this week we began something Matt thought we'd never do.  A go fund me account.  He was questioning it at time of recording but with podcast movement so close and with he and PDM knowing they couldn't afford it themselves well he's decided to try and raise the money.  If you're interested in helping go to www.gofundme.com and search for Matt Cox or podcast movement registration fees.  PDM will put the link in facebook later this week.  Now that we have that advertisement out of the way we got more Foundation we'll start more Peter Whimsay yes Zeek has pull around here or is the correct word tug?  Then it's Navy Lark and we continue Foundation.  Please enjoy. 


This week besides continuing our Whimsay story we're beginning to rerun Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy in better sound.  It was a request so often made I promised to do it as soon as possible.  Sadly we say goodbye to the lads in Tratvia for the first series but we also have an Agatha Sotheby thriller and get a little closer to our murderer.  Enjoy

This week I was delayed somewhat by a huge ice storm.  If Jane my boss hears this and I hope she does it was a real pleasure to help out and I'm glad I could.  However as you'll hear in the beginning this led to a complete rebuild of what was supposed to be an exciting show talking about Brexit how the US elections were seen in Britain and Lincoln City's amazing third round win in the FA cup.  Instead well havea listen and see how the host comes through  Producer Director Maria always says you can make a good meaal with summer sausage, chese, crackers and fruit and I believe qwe've done just that to share the shows would ruin the surprise.  John has been contacted and he'll be joinus us soon.  Enjoy

If you are an old time radio fan as I am then the Gassman brothers really need no introduction.  However if you're new to their voices then a small intro may be needed.  They've hosted an old time radio show on public radio here in Southern California since 1982 called Same Time Same Station and while it's on line now here on yesterdayusa.com or at radiooutofthepast.org their knowledge of otr is truly insightful and wonderful.  Well this week we're discussing British personalities who moved to America and we'll hear a Bob Hope show featuring Barel Davis as its singer we'll hear the blitz of London as CBS news covered it we'll listen to some Al Boly music and hear about an English magazine dedicated to to the British dance band sounds of the twenties and thirties and we'll conclude with The Campbellwell Poisoner fromm The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  Yes it's different but I can already tell you they will be asked back.  You see this is a subject we can continue as we move in to the 400s.  So thanks John and Larry you could have said no with a barbershop harmony convention coming up.  We apreciate it greatly.  Enjoy


We conclude Smith in the city but before that some well deserved Hancock as we talk about the lad's taking over a major newspaper and the fact that Mayor James wishes to turn the lad's home in to a dog track.  Enjoy
