I'm afraid the Brunch voice mail went caput with my frequent overtimes but no worries. It'll be back up soon. Let me begin by telling you we're begining with a Bible mystery again this time talking about Joshua and the Battle of Jeriko. We then look at "The Saint Closes the Case." It's England in the 1930's. Noone trusts anyone be it English or Nazi and the Saint is right in the middle. Enjoy. Those of you looking for the summer marathon stay tuned as it'll be posted soon. Questions or comments?

I want to begin this overview by thanking David O'neil from Extinct Attractions. Just recently he played an intervew of himself done by another podcaster. Well if Dave can do it ... so can I. And I really wanted to share this one with you guys without starting another podcast. So here it is. Lst Saturday I participated in an interview roundtable with noted baseball historian and local radio talk show host Ira Fistel. We talked about a lot of stuff including the 1919 Black Sox Scandal how baseball games were originally thrown the difference between a 19th century and current game and the state of baseball broadcasting. The pannel includes myself, noted otr personality Larry Gassman, Mike Stern and our exultant chair Bob Acosta. It's an hour and a half. And I really hope you come away learning something. If you're a baseball fan you're gonna love it. Btw what does this have to do with Brunch or BBC? Nothing!! But if Gary Chambers can take four month breaks and David Bales can just disappear ... lol ... well I can digress sometimes. Enjoy.

After that we have a brief interview with Peter Purves who played Steven in the original series. We move on to wrap up "The Dust Bowl Baladeers," chronicling the life of Woody Guthrie from WWII through his early death in 1967 at the age of 55. We then conclude with the final episode of the Arthur Conan Doyle novel "The Sign Of The Four," entitled "The Great Agra Treasure." And we finish all these wrapups by discussing last weekend's Friends Of The Magic. If you heard Matt Cox laugh this week you get to hear him rant.

In this episode we continue our countdown to the Friends of The Magic Meet at Disneyland later in July. But we also look back. Oh yes there's Peter Pan and "The Navy Lark," but our second hour is dedicated to the late Michel Jackson. This isn't a King Of Pop weekend filled with phone calls and songs heard over and over again but rather a Radio 2 docmentary called "Michael Jackson's Masterpiece." It discusses Thriller and what Thriller meant and symbolized. If this is your first time listening because you've just discovered us then I hope you come back when we return to normal. But for my loyal fans this hopefully will not disappoint. Remember you can email brunch@london.com or call 206-338-5879. Please enjoy.

It's hard to believe that a little show started among a few friends with a passion for BBC radio has blossomed in to 70 episodes. And this week Brunch brings you music, commedy and police drama. I'd like to say that if you like Pink Floyd you'll love this show ... if you're a casual observer of the band you'll like this show and if you love the band and its psychedelic sound this will go in to your ipod along with your Dark Side of the Moon album. But we can't flood you with Floyd without taking a cruise on the HMS Troutbridge or learn from Officer Dixon about rowdy Spurs fans so ... say when ... and get ready to enjoy Brunch With The Brits.
