Beatles and Rolf Harris bleg

Some loyal Troppodillians might recall a post of mine from the dim dark past celebrating my having downloaded a great track which was the Beatles singing ‘Tie me kangaroo down, sport’ with Rolf Harris, complete with specially written lyrics.  “Don’t ill treat me pet dingo, Ringo”.

Well it was discovered by the cognoscenti of the internet and, unbeknownst to me, was downloaded thousands of times until our webserver at www.peachhomeloans.com.au sent us an invoice for the additional bandwidth used.  I then removed it and noted on the post that I would email it direct to anyone who specifically asked.  I then had a great hard disc crash and lost the file.  And now someone’s emailed me asking for a copy.  If anyone downloaded it, or is more of a whizz on file sharing services than me and can rustle up a copy, please send me a copy at my first (full) name at gruen dot com dot au.

So I can send it on.

Are the spam bots really so intelligent now that you have to go to those lengths to disguise your email address?

The Rolf and Beatles is on The Complete BBC Sessions Disk 06

It was recorded on 18 Dec 1963 and broadcast on 26 Dec 1963 on the program From Us to You. The Beatles often did recordings, such as xmas ones, for fans and radio.

The Complete BBC Sessions is a bootleg 9 CD box set from Great Dane Records, Italy. Total running time is approximately 10 hrs. 16 min. It is comprised of all the available recordings (from private collectors) of The Beatles appearences on BBC radio from March 62 to June 65. (All of these recordings couldnt have been recorded off the air because a couple from 64 are clearly the working recording sessions.) There were a total of 52 known appearences (not counting interviews), of which this collection has 44 (complete and partial).

This collection also has some of the last known recordings of Pete Best playing with the Beatles.

You could listen and watch an animated version of Rolf and The Beatles in here on youtube

Someone – not me – should save that and avoid that poor person getting their server hit.

In late breaking news Federal Police Kommissar Mick Kelty announced the arrest and detention of a notorious blogger and economist for violation of the Music Industry downloading laws.

Kelty said;

“We’ve had our eyes on this character for a while. He’s even gone so far as to advocate Open Source Software. I can say that frankly we’re sick of these economists poking their noses and slide rules into everything from aboriginal issues to terrorism.”

Sources close to Nhat Nyguen denied he was the miserable scientist in custody. Mr Kelty said that the Special Branch had siezed computers and hard drives from the Nectarine Marmalade Pay Day Loan and Pawn Shop. Mr Kelty denied he had any knowledge that St Nicholas was the patron saint of pawn shops.

More in the late news bulletin and now to the stock market and/or the weather – you decide.

Jacques is very intelligent so you’re right it doesn’t apply to him. I OTO will happily confess to being half-intelligent at best, so I’ve substituted the URL as requested.

I didn’t know either until you just asked, which prompted me to google. Apparently it means:

Bleg
A blog where one asks for donations; a cross between blog and beg.
