What occurred January 14th, 2015?

A cracked molar (plus a 5-week wait to see an oral surgeon) had Uncle on the D.isabled L.ist, so LUCI the Computer takes the helm for this "Uncle-Free" Very Heavy Uncle Show.    (Surprise: Audrey is no help at all, and The Devil is MIA).     Superior tunes with limited interruption plus comedy from LITTLE BRITAIN .   Very Heavy, Very LUCI. (Temporarily.)

We don't usually re-post playlists for the Classic Encores, but as v.26 contains neither front nor back-selling, we thought a v.26 playlist was a necessary courtesy.

At most, there are probably 3 photographs of Your Favorite Uncle sporting a bow tie that would make Les Nessman jealous.   This is one of those photos.  I think it was taken on Easter Sunday , but the year escapes me.

Better late than never, here's one of my favorite pics of my father as young stud.   Fresh home from Korea and struggling to form a cowboy-themed motorcycle gang.

Note the presence of the '49 Ford Fanny Magnet in the background.

The Return Of VHUS 23 plus Childhood Constipation!







This weeks' top story:

New free bandwidth.  Which doesn't seem to last as long as it used to.
I suppose I shouldn't complain.

I've been toying with the idea of paying for a bigger chunk of bandwidth from Pod-O-Matic, but GOD DAMN they make it difficult!

Firstly, the head honcho of POM himself sends me a promo code good for 50% ANY pro-level bandwidth package, but neglects to mention any critical terms and conditions - especially if-or-when the code expires.   "Sloan" made a big fuss about sending me his elite personal/private e-mail in the event I had further questions, but what good is the gesture if YOU'RE NOT GOING TO ANSWER MY FUCKING E-MAILS?!?

Sure, I could TRY the code, but based on my past experience with POM's "We got your money now asshole, so fuck you AND your credit card company" customer service, I'm not taking the risk.

Secondly, POM made a big fuss on Twitter that their PRO GOD BROADCASTER package was only $99 in June.   A very appealing offer...   Until you click on the link: A measly $100 discount on a $600 package.   Not.  Even.  Close.     (Needless to say, queries remain un- answered.)

Update 15 June, 2018: Questions mostly answered.  But still... Fuck.

Sometime next week, I hope to find a window to rotate some fresh episodes into the VHUS Dropbox Archive - I'll make sure to include v.22 in that batch as so many many listeners weren't able to download it from POM due to the bandwidth drought.

From the family photo archives... 

I was plagued by constipation as a child.
Or maybe I just didn't like having my picture taken.    
Check out that beach bod!   I'd KILL to look half that good now.

Note the cameo appearance of my father's 1949 Ford in the backgound.   Sadly, the pic doesn't do justice to the almost-fluorescent lime-green paintjob.    3-on-the column, flathead motor.    Dad also had an old school recess bell wired into a floor button - he'd ring that bell every evening as he turned the corner coming home from work.    
I miss that car.
