Phone in session unfortunately not on my tape.
Jim Ladd: Thank you for your call, alright, since we have the guy
here who brought us, we might as well do something, now before we're
gonna do that, let me introduce you to one of the [intrinsical] parts of
the Bleeding Heart Band. This is a gentleman who has a solo album out on
his own, which is doing quite well. He is the keyboardist for the
Bleeding Heart Band, he was in a group called Ace on Time, also Squeeze
and most recently Mike and the Mechanics. Will you please welcome the
keyboard player of the Bleeding Heart Band, Mr. Paul Carrack.
TEMPTED (c) Paul Carrack
Jim Ladd: Ladies and gentleman Paul Carrack.
Band enters the stage.
Jim Ladd: So for the very last time, we are about to link up with
the satellite, we will begin the last show of the Radio KAOS tour with
one more telephone call, this one from outside London.
Billy: Hello, I'm Billy.
Jim Ladd: Yes.
Billy: I hear Radio Waves in my head.
Jim Ladd: You hear Radio Waves in your head? Okay, is there a
request that you have tonight for KAOS?
Jim Ladd: That was a song called Radio Waves by Roger Waters and
the Bleeding Heart Band.
Jingle: K.A.O.S. Radio.
Jim Ladd: You're listening to a live satellite broadcast, from
KAOS on the road and we've got Billy on the line.
Billy: I'm from the Valleys.
Jim Ladd: You're from the Valley?
Billy: No, Jim you schmuck, the Valleys.
Jim Ladd: Yeah, The Valleys.
Billy: Wales, male voice choir.
Jim Ladd: Ah... Wales, England, now is this sperm or blue tip?
Billy: Ha ha ha ha, very funny, Jim.
Jim Ladd: Sorry, but obviously when you were put together
batteries were not included, is that why your voice sounds like eh...?
Billy: I'll show you Jim.
Bleeps, intro from WTTM.
Jim Ladd: Look, all of that aside, I'm just glad that you're with
us tonight... welcome to the machine.
WELCOME TO THE MACHINE.
KAOS on the road.
Jim Ladd: Let's go back to the telephones now, while you were
listening to that last song, Billy and I were having a conversation and
he was explaining me how he was able to call me here at the station.
Billy: I was able to use the cordless phone Jim, otherwise I would
be completely incommunicado.
Jim Ladd: A-ha, yeah.
Billy: I can hack my way into anywhere I choose.
Jim Ladd: Let me get this straight, you can hack your way into....
Billy: See that light bulb next to you?
Jim Ladd: Yes?.
BANG! Light bulb explodes.
Billy: Information is power, Jim.
Jim Ladd: Information is power, I like that. But let me get this
straight, you've just moved out to LA and you're living with your great
Uncle David. You're a long way form home pal.
The music for Who Needs Information starts.
Billy: I miss the male voice choir and Molly.
Jim Ladd: Who's Molly?
Billy: Benny's wife.
Jim Ladd: Who's Benny?
Billy: (Talking) Me and Ben went out....
WHO NEEDS INFORMATION
News Flashes: Further Conflicts in Northern Ireland, two men have
been shot dead by undercover security forces [oh]. Australia has
protested against Ethiopia about the seizure of a ship from Australia
carrying relief aid from Australia, part of its cargo was destined for
the rebel controlled area of Eritrea and Tigre Confisques... about
weapons. Obviously if we are producing things that we cannot need, that
we cannot even justify to our own people, the we are going to supply
them to others. And when that happens then we're fueling war 20% of the
worlds scientists are involved in weapons research. 25% of R&D worldwide
goes on weapons. 50 [15??]% of all British government R&D is on weapons.
More financial and intellectual resources are devoted to (chime)
Babbling continues during the chime of the cash registers.
Jim Ladd: A nice version of money and Paul Carrack on vocals by
the way. And now a word from one of our sponsors.
Ad voice: Girls are you tired of your boring job, getting crazy by
your [dreed] of a boss who has you running for coffee all day? Well
here's the answer: The professional BIMBO-school. From the Rosemary Wood
Tape it in technique to the fine art of shredding, we'll teach you
everything you need to know. How to frost your hair; how to respond to a
senate sub committee; how to stab yourself with a fingernail in your
palm, to release inarterial blood. We tell you almost all about your
moronic beautiful employer. We'll arrange for scarcely clad photos to
appear unauthorized in sleazy magazines. We find a former best friend to
rat on you. We'll even arrange for you to find GOD write a book, and to
do lecture tours in your declining years. You don't have to know how to
type letters. You don't even have to know how to turn over letters. The
time is right for American women and you will now become a BIMBO
GRADUATE. Just call 976-BIMBO **now**
Roger:- Einz zvei drei anger [NOTE FROM RICK: anger or
IN THE FLESH!
HAVE A CIGAR.
PIGS (3 DIFFERENT ONES).
WISH YOU WERE HERE.
Jim Ladd: Wembley, I give you the words and the music of Roger
Waters! Unbelievable set of songs, doesn't matter which side of the
Atlantic you're on. In that set we heard Mother from an album entitled
The Wall, title track from Wish You Were Here, Pigs from the Animals
album, Have a Cigar also from Wish You Were Here, and we began with In
The Flesh Part II also from The Wall. You and I are listening to Radio
Jim Ladd: OK, let's get back to Billy. Billy... yo, Billy?
Billy: I'm sorry Jim, I was miles away, keeping an eye on Molly.
Jim Ladd: You were keeping an eye on Molly. I thought Molly lived
Billy: I had hacked my way into a surveillance satellite. I can
see whole Wales from 500 Miles high Jim.
Jim Ladd: Let me get this straight. You're trying to tell me that
you can keep an eye on Molly by hacking into a government satellite?
Hold tight Baby, baby dear in the starlight,
there is a glow in the stars tonight,
it could be your satellite..
Is it burn deep,
Then will it bring me closer to thee
Oooh two hearts
Ohh will it keep us apart
When you're coming home
'Cause I need you back
And I want you back
right now, right here
Where did we go?
[??] And it's not all that bad
And I know your heart's through
And I want you to know
I'm here for you [??]
Whoo Whoo Whoo
Billy, Billy, Billy
When you're coming home?
And it's not all that bad
And I know your heart's through
Goodbye little spy in the sky
They say that cameras don't lie
Am I happy, am I sad,
am I good , am I bad?
Oh Billy, Billy, come home
Ooooh I need you, Yeaheahheah
Jim Ladd: Ladies and gentlemen Miss Doreen Chanter. Well Billy, if
you really are as clever as you say, perhaps you can close the door.
Jim Ladd: Thank you.
ME OR HIM.
Jim Ladd: And now for some live rock'n'roll at K.A.O.S. where
rock'n'roll comes out of chaos in a song called The Powers That Be.
THE POWERS THAT BE.
Roger: Thank you we're gonna will take a break for about ten
minutes and then we'll be back to do some more.
Jim Ladd: Thank you 10 minutes is exactly 10 minutes. We'll turn
it over to our local station. Radio KAOS will return in just a moment.
Break. The movie, some Russians sound-alikes, interrogating someone
about UFO sightings.
Sound man: OK welcome back, the people out in the audience truck
say you didn't do half bad for an English audience, you were nice and
loud and you woke everybody up in LA who were trying to sleep into this,
so we don't have to do the first half again so we'll do a few new ones
this time. So will you welcome back once more the voice of Radio KAOS,
Mr. Jim Ladd.
Jim Ladd: Welcome back to part 2 of the radio KAOS show, this is
the part of the show where we take a couple of more telephone calls from
the audience to find out what you find from the first part of the show,
or generally what is on your mind. Hello Roger how are you? (crowd
Roger: Hello there.
Just a side note, but does Roger have the right word on the right
place or doesn't he? ;-)
Phone in: (shortened, by me, long version will follow.)
Jim Ladd: We have our first caller here.
Roger: Speak to me.
Caller: Roger Will you run for president?
Roger: What a horrible thought, no.
Caller: Do you believe the tide is turning?
Roger: Yes and NO [at 2:00 not at the end of the show yes.]
Caller: Were WYWH, the Wall, TFC personal?
Caller: Do you think of Maggie, in the second verse of Pigs?
Roger: Occasionally, also of others.
Jim Ladd: I like to continue with the second half of Radio KAOS,
but first a word from one of our sponsors.
Goof up, tape doesn't start.

Jim Ladd: We think of it as main street, but to the rest of the
world it's known as the Sunset Strip.
Jim Ladd: We've all been wondering how this next bit was going to
play in London, you see it's kind of a combination of sexual innuendo
and sports fishing so... [...] L-L-L-L-LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, The Fish
Report with a Beat. Featuring Parakeet Kelly and his fishing companion
Cynthia the Fox. All right, it's time now for the Fish Report with a
Fish reporter: 85 red rock-hard rocca.

GET YOUR FILTHY HANDS OF MY DESERT.
Billy: Hey Jim I've been listening to your show.
Jim Ladd: Billy.
Billy: Look what I have found.
Jim Ladd: Billy I appreciate you're a magician with the cordless
telephone and all but we're on the air life and you cannot just cut in
any time you want.
Billy: You'll like this.
Jim Ladd: Billy... (sigh).
Billy: I found this in the files on Abbey road studios.
Billy takes control over the video display and shows a video of:
Roger: The great Syd Barrett, he shouldn't be forgotten.
Jim Ladd: Well Billy I don't know how you did that.[...]
Billy: Well just try to.
Jim Ladd: Have you come up with a solution yet?
Billy: I'm getting closer.
Jim Ladd: Well we'll let our young computer genius work on his
particular problem, while we continue with a song entitled If.
Someone(?): On guitar, Andy Fairweather-Low.
Jim Ladd: All right let's get back to Billy and find out how he is
Billy: Just getting through some data. It must look good.
News flash about hacking trees:
News reader: Third of the Amazon rain forest has been mostly for
cattle to supply the USA with hamburgers for each westerner 2 to 3 tress
die each year, representing an area the size of England and Scotland.
NOT NOW JOHN.
"Fuck all that" chanting/turning in "Tear down the wall"
Jim Ladd: You will remember at the beginning of the show we had a
call from the hall from a guy by the name of Sean who wanted to hear
more music from the wall. Well, Sean this one's for you it's called
Another Brick In The Wall.
ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL, PART 1/ THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES/
ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL PART 2.
Jim Ladd: All right Wembley, there's a fine voice tonight. Since
we're on the subject of education, in America one goes to school for 12
years, cramming your mind full of useless facts called homework, try to
please your parents, try to please your teachers, and when you come out
at the end of these 12 years the lights are on, but there's nobody home.
Billy: I'm finished Jim.
Jim Ladd: You're finished Billy? Have you solved the problem? Have
you come to some sort of decision yet?
Billy: It's later than you think.
Jim Ladd: It sure is later then I think, but what's the point?
Billy: There's still some time.
Frantic bongo drums start.
Jim Ladd: I heard that. Now the question is: what should be done?
Billy: It's time to go home.
Jim Ladd: Easy maestro. What do you mean it's time to go home?
Jim Ladd: Billy, easy Billy.
Billy: It's time to go home.
Bongos, war room sounds.
War room voice: Bearing 060 range.
War room voice: Nuke analyzer.
War room voice: This is the SPO confidence report now.
War room voice: Mid confidence is high.
War room voice: Confidence high inform missile warning in form
War room voice: Hello we have an IRBM in the system and our
confidence is high.
War room voice: Missile warning informed sir.
War room voice: Thank you.
And some more of this.
Billy: 4 minutes and counting. I've decided to stop the pain. I'm
going to push the button. I'm sorry Jim. It's the bottom of me.
Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs someone they call home
Everybody needs someone they call home
By one of the ladies. (?)
There must be more to life,
Than lucky strikes and some unlucky ones
And folded flags and pipes and drums.
Taken from the song Folded Flags, from the soundtrack of When the
Billy: I wanted everyone to know what it felt like, you me and The
Powers That Be. Will you forgive me Jim?
Jim Ladd: If you'll swear you'll never fly again.
THE TIDE IS TURNING
Includes the lost verse:
The tide is turning Sylvester
We shall not be dragged down
In your South China Sea
Of macho bullshit and mediocrity.

a long time ago, Dark Side of The Moon, and she's coming here to do some
songs with us. Mrs. Clare Torey.
