This wasn't quite as awkward as I'd expected from what I'd heard. Still funny though
20 years on I would agree but at the time the BBC was still clinging on to its Reithian values and auntie knew best as far as things like this were concerned. Hence broadcasters like Gloria who were loved by the heirachy at the BBC for being prim and proper etc were seen as being a beacon for correctness.
I reckon IA realised this and, to be fair, Gloria fell right into his trap.
It's still a puzzle as to how John Peel was able to retain his programme right up to his passing.
I strongly advise the audience to bring a soft cushion to sit on, and perhaps bring some sandwiches, because you might get a little peckish half way through Ian Anderson
maddogfagin: Depends whether it's got 3 or 4 prongs. The 4 prong type are more expensive.
