^^ relistening to another show now: third season, third episode "Night"
Another good opening. Funny again. Didn´t get some words again:

Why is Wanda Jackson in the Rockn´Roll Hall of Fame ? And how do they the coffee so damn hard in Simpsons Diner ? But none of these questions is quite so puzzeling as this one: Why did it take us 78 shows before we decide to do one as obvious as the subject of night? That´s right. The todays broadcast we can talk about that time between dusk and dawn. And like the fog , it becomes on little cats feet. It´s a matter of fact, it´s an old … All cats a grey at night.

"Welcome to Theme Time Radio Hour. We pride ourselves in asking the tough questions. We´ll answer most of them on our question show, but we've still got a few others. Why wasn't Charlie Feathers a bigger star? Why isn't Wanda Jackson in the Rockn´Roll Hall of Fame ? And how do they get the coffee so damn hot in Simpsons Diner ? But none of these questions are quite as puzzling as this one: Why did it take us 78 shows before we decided to do one as obvious as the subject for tonight? That´s right. On todays broadcast we're gonna be talkin' about that time between dusk and dawn. And like the fog, it be comes in on little cats feet. As a matter of fact, there´s an old saying: All cats are grey at night. Meaning all things can seem the same under the cover of darkness. Samuel Johnson once said, whoever thinks of going to bed before 12 o'clock is a scoundrel. Well, this show's definitely not for scoundrels. We'll be talkin' about the bewitching hour, nightfall, nightshade, the dimness and darkness of the p.m., and like J.J. Cale, we might even shake our tambourine."

As near as I can get :shock: :D

And in fact this was show no. 78. Does that give us a hint that the "Kiss" show was recorded later? ...Or they recorded it earlier but decided afterwards not to broadcast it?!

In the "Night"-Episode he speaks at one place about the "night shadows".
In another part he talks about the painting of Van Gogh "A Starry Night"
I could not understand everything and I´m not sure, if its fake of him that theory
about the genesis of the painting or an existing theory. Think -it´s a joke.

"Night can be celebrated in song, in film, and in every other art. Perhaps one of the most famous evocations of night can be seen on a canvas covered with oil paint. It was painted at St. Remy in June of ´89. That's 1889. You art buffs are way ahead of me; you know i'm talking about
“A Starry Night” by the tragic painter Vincent Van Gogh.
A lot of theories about Van Gogh. Some say he was born with a brain lesion. Others say that the long use of absinthe can cause an epileptic condition. There is a toxin in the absinthe called _______
Now the interesting thing about ______ is – it can cause one to see objects with a yellow tint.
The way they say that Viagra makes you see things with a blue tint. A lot of art students who have consulted with physicians say that this _______ may have effected Van Gogh's pallet. You can see it in this one, especially.
Plus, Van Gogh used lead-based paint. There's a symptom of lead poisoning where your retinas swell up and that causes you to see halo-like circles around objects. Now, look at Starry Night : it's yellow with halo- like glows around its stars. Sounds like absinthe and lead to me. I'm not even talking about him cutting off his ear and giving it to a prostitute or about shooting himself in the chest less in a year after painting the Starry Night.
But I will tell you this: his finest works were produced in less than three years and he only sold one painting while he was alive."


^ Here's some of it....i couldn't catch the name of the toxin in absinthe.
Maybe someone here knows what it is.
Bob wasn't joking around, these are actual theories about Van Gogh....one of my favorite
painters, BTW.

It's sad if Bob is right and Van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime!

So true... and kiss is not a snog, atlhough a snog may be a kiss . or several. Snogging is the protracted act of swapping spit/sucking face and other american idioms often done in the heat of passion leading to further passion.... many a baby has resulted from snogging (and it's frenzied aftermath... mind that gear stick.... dat aint no gear stick honey... But I'm not THAT kinda gurl!...... you are now toots....) nine months later "daddy what's a gearstick".

Snogging is passionate lip to lip suction with some voracious tongue action thrown in. often best performed while snuggling, or pretty much anywhere really... just remember - loose lips sink ships 8)

i had the pleasure of a 1 1/2 hour snog and we are back together.... to quote Mo Tucker 'I'm sticking with you, coz I'm made out of glue.....' What snogging records do other er members lay claim too? we could hold a 'snog in' to a long list of romantic Blob songs ... Spanish is the loving tongue!

Haven't listened to the show, but could it be alpha-thujone?

It's in the second link Queen Anne Lace posted.

Thujone poisoning

In order to counter act his attacks of epilepsy, anxiety, and depression, Van Gogh drank absinthe, a toxic alcoholic drink popular with many artists at the time. Thujone is the toxin in absinthe. Unfortunately, the Thujone worked against Van Gogh aggravating his epilepsy and manic depression. High doses of thujone can also cause one to see objects in yellow. Various physicians have differing opinions on whether or not this is what caused Van Gogh's affinity with yellow.

I thought Bob is jokin cause I misunderstood the whole. I didn´t understand the word absinth,

paintings, love them. Waaah ! He could only sell one of them and now they ....

For those interested, the complete transcript of "Kiss" (with occasional commentary) is now available at Dreamtime...

http://www.dreamtimepodcast.com/2015/02 ... -kiss.html

Corrections are welcome. Enjoy!

Don't know if anyone else has noticed this yet but the version of the KIss progarm on Radio 6 is different from the one broadcast on Radio Eins. I haven't yet checked the whole thing, but if you go to 13 minutes in (after Passionate Kisses), this is follwed on Eins version by Carter Family, whereas on BBC version it is followed by Billy Boy Arnold Kissing At Midnight.
Also ending misses out the Redd Foxx
There may be other differences

The BBC version is also missing the end credits.

As has been mentioned elsewhere the BBC version lacks the Redd Fox quote.

The BBC6 version ends with:-
"I agree with you totally. Go kiss someone you love"

The RadioEins show ends with these words:-

"I agree with you totally. We'll see you next week. Go kiss someone you love"
followed by credits read by announcer

Man, I could speculate till the cows came home on this. The "see you next week" indicates that RadioEins had the episode originally targeted for broadcast during Season 3 of TTRH (the credits are Season 3 credits). Did they cut the Billy Boy Arnold sequence because of time limits (another post in this forum noted that the "Friendly Takeover" show normally only runs 55 minutes)? But why cut that rather than the Redd Foxx sequence and the credits? And why would the BBC bother to edit out the "See you next week" as well as the Redd Foxx section and the credits?

Very confusing.

Here are some other missing bits, comparing to the transcript by Fred@Dreamtime:

Mistletoe story (leading up to Memphis Minnie):

“One place a lot of people kiss is under the mistletoe. Well, it's an interesting legend. According to Scandinavian myth, the Norse god Balder was the best loved of all the gods. Frigga was his mother, the goddess of love and beauty. She wanted to make sure no harm would ever come to her beloved son. She went through the entire world getting promises from everything that sprang from the four elements that they would not harm her beloved Balder. The evil trickster Loki was able to find the one thing that could harm Baldur, and that was mistletoe. He made an arrow from the wood of the mistletoe. To be even crueler, he took the arrow to Balder's blind brother Hoder. Loki guided Hoder's hand and shot the arrow at Balder's heart. He fell dead, and Frigga's tears changed the red mistletoe berries to white. But the gods gave mercy on Frigga and Balder was restored to life. Frigga was so grateful that she showed no hatred for the offending mistletoe plant, making it a symbol of love and promising to bestow a kiss upon anyone who passed beneath it.

I'm sure some of those kisses happened in the dark. Here's Memphis Minnie...”

Danny White post-song banter:

“That was Danny White, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye". The closest thing he had to another hit was the next year with a cover version of Earl King's ballad "Loan Me a Handkerchief", an emunctory song to say the least.”

Huelyn Duvall intro and outro:

“Let's continue our kissing show with a guy who didn't have a hit, but he had the last word on a hit. I'll explain it after I play the song. Here's Huelyn Duvall, "Pucker Paint".

That was Huelyn Duvall and "Pucker Paint". He never had a hit of his own, but back in 19 and 58 he was asked to sit in on a recording session. He didn't play guitar on that record, but he added some "oohs" and "aahs" to the A-side, a song called "Train to Nowhere". The B-side was an instrumental, and he didn't play on it at all. However he did yell the title out on the end, and sometime every day you can hear Huelyn Duvall yell out "Tequila" at the end of the Champs record.”

Connie Francis story (missing from BBC version):

“Connie Francis was a very popular artist who had a very sad life [...rest of story cut..] but that’s not how I choose to remember her...”

A lot about kissing (single line missing from BBC version, before Everly Brothers):

“[Now, it seems like I know a lot about kissing.] Here’s Don and Phil with a song written by Don...”
