(JP: 'And here's a heartwarming letter from a Leslie Forrest writing from Broxburn, West Lothian, Dear John, this really is a Dear John, did you know that your show is used as a weapon in a nurses home. Today certain members in our corrider of the nurses home in Bangour General Hospital have been sentenced to move out of our home, because they play out outrageous music too loud and entertain lavishly in their rooms. In other words, we only try to drown out all the monotonous sounds of Tammy Wynette and Kenny Rogers and the culprits are you and your programme half of the time. But you never knew you would be in a middle of a feud in a nurses home and could you please play something that's a rowdy singalong, could you play a rowdy rowdy singalong number of any sort. Well this is pretty rowdy, although I think you'll have some difficulty in singing along with it, but thank you for the letter Leslie Forrest. I should keep that one actually. It will come useful for the memoirs. This is Gary Clail')
(JP: 'Still slightly puzzled by the gig that they're doing this week at Duxford supporting Talk Talk but I'm trying to get along to it. That's The Fall, Living Too Late, the new single')
(JP: 'Not a bad idea actually. If you like to compile a list and send it to me, I'll see what I can do') [1]
(JP: 'Well I wonder if she's interested in doing a session, that's Princess Stephanie of Monaco some advised. There's a picture of her on the sleeve, but frankly I wouldn't know if it's her or not, but nice record to have, if it is really is. I wonder if our own dear Royal Family would start doing that sort of thing. I hope they do I must say')
