Late Night start vanavond uitzonderlijk om 22u30 en er hoort een disclaimer bij: "Ons vakmanschap drink je met verstand.". Maar daar denken veel muzikanten blijkbaar toch fundamenteel anders over en dus serveren we straks dronkemansgebral uit alle windstreken. We hebben voor de gelegenheid ook één nummer integraal laten uittikken door de collega's van de dienst ondertiteling. Een track uit "Shut Up, Little Man!", een plaat rond twee heren met een serieus alcoholprobleem uit San Francisco, Peter J. Haskett en Raymond Huffman. Hun buurman was zo vrij om hun zattemansconversaties op te nemen en op cd uit te brengen. Met daarbij ook een paar van de telefoonfratsen die hij met hen uithaalde. Dit soort ongein:
[phone rings] Nova Express Times: Hello? Ray: Is anybody there? Nova Express Times: Yeah good evening. Ray: Yes who am I speaking to? Nova Express Times: Hi I'm calling on behalf of the Nova Express Times. And I'd like to ask you a few questions for a survey I'm conducting on alcoholism and how it effects all of our lives? Ray: I'm sorry would you repeat that first thing again? Nova Express Times: Sure, I'm uhh with the Nova Express Times and I'd like to ask you a few questions for a survey we're conducting. Would that be ok? Ray: Hell no. I don't have to answer any fuckin' questions. You wanna... you wanna pay you and get questions... answers but... who's it... I mean exactly who do you work for? Nova Express Times: I work for the Nova Express Times. It's a newspaper sir. Ray: Well [unintelligible] Nova Express Times: Pardon me? Ray: I'm not answering to that bullshit. Nova Express Times: OK. Sir are you... have you been drinking this evening? Ray: Absolutely. Nova Express Times: You have? Ray: Well of course. Nova Express Times: How many... how many drinks do you... do you partake in each day? Ray: None of your fuckin' business. Goodbye and... take your god damn... thing somewhere else OK? Nova Express Times: You're obviously an alcoholic sir. Maybe you can reach out to us. Ray: Heh heh heh heh heh! Hey listen, listen. I'll tell you what. I have been drinking for more than sixty fuckin' years. Nova Express Times: That's amazing sir. Ray: So... and so I... I mean you're some little asshole with... tryin' to do something, I... OK... Nova Express Times: Sir do you think you're... you're trying to cover over umm your latent homosexuality or something? Ray: Heh heh heh heh. Piss on you. Heh heh heh heh heh. [phone hangs up]
