Welcome idiots!

As written in the ancient texts, the mysterious Idiot Joy Show organisation is believed to have been formed in 267BC, on a Tuesday afternoon. Active in the pre-Reformation period as the main official sponsor of Easter, before Henry VIII’s roving eye for the ladies put paid to that lucrative deal, IJS, as it became known during the character purges of the late 17th century, was forced underground for centuries.

IJS remained an oral history passed down from generation to generation through the years. Unconfirmed reports of activity occasionally emerged – inventing the internet in 1929 for the sole purpose of cat propaganda, the controversial grassy knoll tour of the early 1960s, and the wearing of a hat at a jaunty angle in 1985. Like a made up fictional entity, IJS stayed in the shadows until one – up to that point – fairly mundane Wednesday evening.

On that Wednesday evening in 2008, Idiot Joy Show triumphantly rose overground in the guise of Subverse Radio, which was a little confusing but was rectified a few years later. As of today, Idiot Joy Show remains firmly in the public consciousness, but some believe it continues to mix metaphors with its numerous tentacles pulling the strings of the hand behind many of the world events you view on your television sets using your eyes.

Rate the tracks!

Like a track? Give it the thumbs up. As if you’re the best buddy it ever had (and by also imagining the track is a sentient being).

Hate a track? Give it the thumbs down. Let your inner Roman emperor out by condemning the track to a possible death in the IJS Virtual Coliseum of Judgement (perhaps best to not think of the track as a sentient being with this option).

These actions will ensure only the highest quality of music is played on IJS Radio. Unless you have terrible judgement, which will mean ruining it for everyone else. But that’s democracy for you. Just be careful, that’s all I’m saying.

Read further nonsense and risk potential disappointment over at Idiot Joy Show.
