(JP: 'I'm sure Mixmaster Morris isn't into football. He might be, who can say, but I'd be surprised if he was really. While that was going on, my thoughts turned as they so often do to football, and it occurred to me that the difference between the Liverpool teams of as it were yesteryear and the present lot is that under Shankley and Paisley, good players played brilliantly, whereas now good players play badly. There you go,think about that.')
(JP: 'Dangerously like Donna Summer, someone said in the studio. I hadn't though of that, I must admit.')
(JP: 'In the 50s and 60s, records like this were very very popular in America. Nowhere else, I suspect.')
