To celebrate this special I Love JOY edition, here's what's on tonight's show.


Jade and Dave reminisce on 90s film icons and the defining movies of that era. Anyone say Jodie Foster, Drew Barrymore, Michelle Pfeiffer and Bruce Willis? The list goes on. Who else was reigning the film industry in that era?


You know we always got your best interest at heart when we suggest you more sites to procrastinate on. Presenting your new internet addiction: 9GAG. It's a website where all the fun of the interwebs go to play. Jade and Dave talk about the popularity of sites like 9GAG and why our parents should just get onto it rather than forwarding us chain emails of funnies.


Yesterday Dave saw a popular digital music store packaging a "One Hit Wonder" compilation where you can buy these forgotten classics for a little over a dollar. This prompted much discussion about Jade and Dave's favourite one hit wonders and whether there's a similar sentiment applied to indie/underground bands.
