Lang ersehnt, endlich wahr: Rocko Schamoni und Jacques Palminger berühren die wunden Punkte. Die beiden testosteronerfahrenen Lebemänner aus Hamburg steuern geradewegs die Champs-Elysées der Themenkomplexe an. Nur die großen Dinge des Lebens kommen vor ihre Mikrofone. Dieses Mal wird eine besonders böse Blume in den auralen Fokus gezerrt: Gewalt.

Ja, sie bringen diesen schwarzen Stern zum Leuchten, mit Geschrei in engen Räumen und Hasstiraden in der Hallspirale. 1. Sprache: Deutsch.
