- (JP: “George Thorogood & The Destroyers – I know a lot of people don’t like them, I’ve seen a lot of criticism of them in the music press and so forth. But I mean, initially the blues, even the ones the classic blues of the 1920s, were records made intended to be danced to. And you can certainly jump around quite nicely to George Thorogood & The Destroyers. If I can do it, you can, let’s face it, and I managed to do it.”)

- (JP: “Thanks to Peter Powell for coming into the studio to report for the Chelsea and New York match earlier this evening. So much nicer when one of the lads drops in – think he’s the first one who ever did actually. Gambaccini came in once, but he was lost. Tomorrow of course it's agonizing night – I hope Liverpool come out on top, I suspect they will. Good night.)
