Episode 4 – Famous People

Socrates was once reported to say that “fame is the perfume of heroic deeds”, although quite how this definition explains Kim Kardasian is a philosophical quandary for better men than us. Heroic or not, celebrities of all ages are our topic this week and in particular those of sufficient renown to have been immortalised in song.

As we amble down these gilded halls of fame we note the celebrity-inducing properties of public execution, admire The Boss’s brave deployment of a glockenspiel and recount how a chance encounter with a mate of Sean Lennon’s may well have saved Billy Joel’s career.

As usual the language we use here is vulgar at best, so please cover any nearby children’s ears.
