Fortnight Tonight – 10-07-2005
Note/Disclaimer: 11-18-2016 – Hi. 🙂 These episodes have been “remastered” and reposted for the sake of completeness. Listen to my monotone mouth-breathing delivery at your own risk. Fortnight Tonight ran bi-weekly in theory from 2005-2006, but in practice only had 6 episodes. You can do the maths. Opinions expressed in these episodes are probably no longer valid. – Ryan

Welcome to Fortnight Tonight, a look at stuff from the past 2 weeks, from my POV. I’m your humble narrator, Ryan Livingston.

Legendary British comedian, Ronnie Barker, passes away. Best known for “Open All Hours” and “Porridge.”
And now for the works exploited:
The cheesetastic intro music was compiled from Acid Pro loops and a loop from
analoguesamples.com(link defunct). The rest of the music was, of course, Bolero by Ravel. And the little doodoodoodoo between news bits was taken from ELO’s song “Here is the News” from the album Time. I realize now I ruined it instead of homaged it. I’m sorry.
