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.
In most cases, my favorite Jethro Tull songs will be determined by how I feel about them as live performance songs, not by the recorded identity.

backdoorangel: Thanks, JTull 007 for the great conversation! Good to know there are such rational, decent folk out there who are also diehard Tullians. And thanks for pointing me to this board after my floundering about on another board with zero response to my posts!

JTull 007: Welcome again to Backdoorangel I may scare a few Chat Groops out there but I always try to see both sides. In this place, we all learn from each other and there is no DOGMA. Except in Armenia

backdoorangel: In and out of the back door ran one front door angel... Maybe I should've called myself that instead? Back-door has all those negative connotations! Just ruminating...

JTull 007: I believe you are always able to modify your name here. I used to be JTull07 until I realized how much fun I could have driving an Aston Martin DB5.
