(JP: 'And time now, I think, for your monthly dose of the guitar playing of Diblo Dibala.')
(JP: 'I don't know whether I've mentioned this to you before, but I haven't exactly become fixated, but I know that somewhere in my collection of seven inch singles, there's a really good cover version of a Little Richard song, except that I can't remember which Little Richard song it is, nor can I remember who it is who's recorded it. So, out of sheer desperation, I'm having to make my way through my entire collection of seven inch singles until I find it, and of course, in the course of doing this, I come up with one or two interesting records that I forget I've ever owned, and if you'd asked me a week ago, "Do you have a record by somebody called Eddie Buster Forehand?", I'd have said, "No, I don't think I do, as a matter of fact", but I do, and it's a stormer as well!')
(JP: 'Also a couple of weeks ago, well about four or five weeks ago, whenever it was, just after I'd crossed the Austro-Hungarian border, I heard somebody on a radio station, an English language radio station, asking somebody in all seriousness, "And do you rock'n'roll yourself?", they asked, and that was for that person, whose name, alas, I don't know.')
