Week 7 – lucky for some! There was a Double Shot from Arcade Fire, but I chickened out of another by Gong, just treating the ears of Brentwood and Billericay to 7 minutes 42 seconds of one tune instead. I had ‘Expand My Mind’ suggestions from James, Coach Mahaffey and William respectively, and I chose Karen O as my Token Female, singing in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
After a couple of technical hitches, I was left with airtime to fill, which was ably carried out with suggestions from our lovely listeners.
Insect Of The Week was the very popular, but apparently smelly, Earwig.
