'Top 5 Places to go in a Time Machine'

If you had five tokens for a time machine where would you go?

That's the level of contemporary cutting-edge discourse you can expect from the Tom Walker show...

This was a nattery show. Generally meandering through the hypothetical echelons of time. It was good to be back really having taken a few weeks off to recourperate from 2010. New Years Eve saw me dressed as the campest possible musketeer you can imagine ('Cher' wig and chest wig included). I even had a little bin bag cape. Dream.

I played a few tunes I've wanted to for a while...

Duck Sauce - Babs Streisand

War - Low Rider

Estelle Ft Kanye - American Boy (for the robotics)

Florence and the Machine - You got the Love

Dropkick Murphy's - I'm shipping up to Boston ('that song from The Departed')

Dad's Record of the Week** ZZ Top - La Grange

The XX - Crystallised

Beach Boys - Good Vibrations

Iggy - The Passenger

Mystery Jets Ft Laura Marling - Young Love

Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm

Roxy Music - Love is the Drug

Rant of the week** People whinging about the snow - inevitably be better prepared for it - it could happen at winter. What do Polar bears do? The same goes for flu - get more jabs in, it happens every year 'we've run out'. Why have we run out? Don't run out. Ahhh. Better now.

Tom's Top 5 'Places to go in a Time Machine'...

5. Watch the Big Bang - essentially a 'good specatcle'.

4. Watch the Armada getting whooped - with a Pimms.

3. Ali/Foreman - Rumble in the Jungle - he was writing checks with his mouth that his body couldn't cash, but then essentially Ali cashed them anyway - much to everyones suprize. I wouldn't be suprized in my time machine. But it would be good anyway. And I'd have a flutter on him too so - cashback.

2. Speech by Luther King - probably the 'dream' one. Just a good speaker really and a bit inspirational.

1. Woodstock '69. Peace man.

Thank y'all.
