Adam is explaining how a song wouldn’t be so bad, but it’s much worse because of what comes up.

Adam is now playing it live into the mic, Adam does not know how that got onto his phone, but I can only assume it’s from me as I have emailed him old show clips from 2007, so this could be my fault, but it doesn’t for sure sound like anything I would have sent.


Adam is trying to explain how hard it is to conduct and interview with a radio show with this playing in the background.
