"still just about the most requested item at Peel Acres, anyway hardly a day passes when a child doesn't appear in my doorway and say 'Daddy, can I please have the Melody Maker Reading Present promo only not for sale with rare and exclusive tracks CD with the Elastica track on it?', and I say 'Yes child, take it". I've got it for the moment, which is why I played it to you again".
"and because I was so excited, and because I enjoy being with you so much, I seem to be talking a load of nonsense, because in the last link, I said 'quickly' when I meant 'quietly'. So i know there are people who illegally record these programmes and keep them, so I shall now say 'quietly' for them, so they can edit it out and go back and put it in instead of 'quickly' in the previous link.
