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.
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.

steelmonkey: Grabbed one of Bert's great boots for the car today ( Ploughing ) Man, that' Ruby Tuesday' cover they got talked into in Greece in '92 is wretched. I guess Shona or James can play it at home if Ian deserves torture.

JTull 007: Wow! I got scared in 2007 on the morning I left for Atlanta to see Best of Acoustic/Electric Tull. We had a 3.5 nearby and it felt like a truck hit the house.

JTull 007: I'm sure no one will be saying there's nothing to buy this year from Tull in 2014. Regardless of what you prefer, this year has been the most variety I've seen in 41 years of being a fan. Love IT !
