Ding Dong

I went there! I had been planning the opening gag since midweek; open with 'Over The Rainbow' and then ponder on the fuss about not playing a song from The Wizard Of Oz. Satire! I should be on a late night BBC2 show or something. After all the hype surrounding the playing of the song, I had let it be known that whatever the BBC decided, I was going to play the song. My big advantage was that my show starts immediately after the Radio 1 chart countdown, so even if only for the first ten minutes or so, my audience would probably be higher than usual.

This week I did the show solo, something that I enjoyed doing but felt that something was lacking. However, it suited having two bands in as I didn't have to fill with a lot of chatter. We had two brilliant sets, (one in each hour) from Lunar Park and Fields.
