The Rue McClanahan Hour – Week 1 (now available with 4.5 times the recommended dosage of podcast)

with 6 comments

A lot of people have been coming to this post following the tragic death of Rue McClanahan. The Rue McClanahan Hour was a very short-lived radio show that was certainly in the spirit of Rue, though had little to do with the lady herself. If we hadn’t been pulled off air, we did intend to get Rue on the line. Anyway, our tribute to Rue is here.

Rest In Peace, Rue.

You’re in Valhalla now.

The Rue McClanahan Hour begins at 7pm on the 28th of December.

Hang on – that’s today, baby!

Melbourne-based Blanche-Heads can tune in to 102.7 FM, those further afield can listen online at Those reading this after 8pm on the 28th – stop! Don’t do anything rash! We will have the show up as a podcast within a few days.



That was close.

Enjoy the show!

  1. Not the first time I’ve been paid out in front of thousands. Last time some one pronounced it like that though, I was in fourth class, Mrs Dowling I believe. But seeing Cavè was on the list as well, I felt better not being singled out.

    Man, that music… what can I say? The good tunes should’ve lasted longer and the others… “Half a bee” was good to hear again, been a while.

    Pity I missed it live but public holiday often equals gettin’ out o’ the house.

    If you take requests, a small bit of the “Lumberjack” song would be great, I grew up with that one.

    Paolo (preferable pronunciation, Parlo). Cheers guys.

  2. Hi Paolo,

    As you know, we are quite appreciative of your constructive criticisms… but I am not quite sure what you are talking about? When in the show did we refer to you?

  3. Right at the beginning Cam says “How much Pay-oh-lah (Paola).” Can’t remember the reference (fish and broccoli I think it was), but ’twas right at the very start. No-one will know though, the female derivative was used for one thing and, as I said before, no-one has said it like that since I was a young’un… in 1910. Or was it some other word “pay-oh-lah” (paola) of the quintuple meanings each phrase ‘may’ imply.

    Much, much better second week’s show. Everybody gets offended at something, don’t sweat it (I know you don’t anyway), so many people obviously just don’t get it.

    I’ll email you a joke I heard at uni last semester, right in line (Muslims not rape).

  4. Hey Paolo, I was talking about Payola – bribes that record companies pay to radio stations to play their tunes.

    • Hahahahaha. Still, my mistake was sort of half justified… they are close in spelling and I’d never heard of the “payola” term before. (I’ve heard Paella)

      Did you read my emailed joke “Middle-eastern appearance?”

      Ben sent that message requesting support. I sent RRR an email in your favour. Did they hassle you much? Problem with radio is that people tune in at any old time and can easily misunderstand the gist of the program… and then there’s the fact that some people are just bloody slow. Oh well, wake up call.

      • Middle Eastern Joke received and is being considered. We are probably going to steer clear of edgy material next week.

        Only jokes about low level sexual assault – groping etc.
