Primordial Lexicon

Primordial Radio and the Primordial Family (#prfam), as with all communities, have a collection of popular phrases that are particular to ourselves. Don’t worry if you hear something and don’t quite understand it, this handy lexicon will help you out.

General Terms

The Rules

The Rules are the binding agreement that we all have with each other. The Rules bring us together and you will be notified if you break them. They are:

  1. Don’t Be A Dick
  2. Do The Right Thing
  3. If in doubt, see Rule 1

Tyre Fire

A Tyre Fire will occur when something greatly divides opinion and the discussion thereafter continues for an unnecessarily long time. The greatest Tyre Fire occurred when The One and Only by Chesney Hawkes was played.
