The Return Of Penny

I've been thinking about the structure of the show, and while we were pre-recording the third hour we came up with doing Steve's Big Bag Full Of Bowie to close the third hour. The only way I fucked up a little, is that Penny sent me some song choices a couple of days ago and it was too late as I was going to a gig and missed the deadline. I assumed she would be using last week's choices, so it was resolved. It was hardly a crisis that threatened to bring down radio, but I fucked something up and I don't like that.
