(JP: 'Our Brian says that sounds like Radar Love by Golden Earring. She'll be given a good pummelling as soon as the opportunity presents itself.')

File a begins

(JP: 'On I think it was Monday night's programme I played a track from the LP Walking In The Shadow Of The Big Man by Guadalcanal Diary, and a Radio 1 person came down the following day to congratulate me on doing so and to find out more about it, being quite excited by it. She is at this very moment of course being re-educated in a sub-basement somewhere, having Howard Jones LPs played to her at deafening volume till her brain cells transmute.')
(JP: 'It seems to be taken as gospel by reviewers of both concerts and LPs that Morrissey's lyrics are whimsical and wimpy, but to me they seem to be direct and forceful where direct and forceful is right.')
