Back once again with the ill behaviour – It’s West Midlands Hospital Radio! The nation’s number-one medically themed indie rock radio show.

Tonight’s show is one for the heads. We’re leaving affairs of the heart behind us and getting cerebral. That’s right! It’s brain week here at St Vincent’s and we let Pavlov’s dogs out with all sorts of neurological, psychological, sort of logical sounds: Pink Freud, Lisa Lobe, the sound of neuroscience. If that all sounds a bit, well, difficult, I assure you it’s not brain surgery… oh, wait…

I sort of thought that this week’s episode might be a bit bumpy, but I think it’s turned out great. We have 30 absolute melon twisters for you (alright, maybe 28) plus Jokes galore! Midway Metal Madness! Behind the Music! Hot Take! Taillights Fail! Dubious accents! And a little bit of mental health chat.

Parental guidance: Sufjan Stevens (of all people) gets very sweary 35 minutes into the show. Tighten it up Stevens. The rest of the episode is all beeped, but you make your own decision as to whether you want your kids listening to Quiet Riot.
