Swerving rapidly to the Julie Driscoll's coat theme, my only radio appearance was as a phone in guest on a radio 5 show Annie used to do. She looked elegantly wasted. I think she wore shades throughout.
I spent my 1979 token on the then-current Wire album. But when I won a token for getting some of my jokes used in J.Edward Oliver's strip cartoon in 'Disc' in 1972, I bought 'Anticipation' by Carly Simon. A sensitive boy for 13.
