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.

tootull: I'm battered and bruised. I got tunes I can't use. My Homo Erraticus won't deliver. Well, I'm singing Thick As A Brick down by the river. But I'm Tullin' again. Yes, 'n' I'm Tullin' again. Well, I'm Tullin' again. And I'm Tullin' again.

Equus: Maybe they simply misunderstood the word intermission? Here's a clue... It doesn't mean: "Please leave now!"

JTull 007: Solution... Provide Adult Depends to everyone up in the balcony so they won't get stuck in line at the restrooms. Many venues have very few restrooms for such a large audience. Also, complimentary DVDs of TAAB 1&2 if they stay.

JTull 007: Actually 'incontinence' affects millions of ordinary adults. Sometimes the excitement of seeing something you love will cause this. Remember what happened during the 60's when the Beatles played?

rbgflute: Saw the Oakland show, Ian and new band gave a wonderful performance, just loved it. The new album HE works quite well live. My first Tull show was the Aqualung tour, then TAAB. I do miss Martin Barre and John Evan.

tootull: The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces...Then he called the band down to the stage and he looked at all the friends he'd made...And threw away his looking-glass - saw his face in everyone.
