And that rather grandiose Paul McCartney quote from the front cover of John and Yoko’s 1968 avant garde bonkersfest “Two Virgins” (although no one saw it because they were too busy looking at the staggeringly unattractive picture of them with their gear off that also adorns said LP – at least it wasn’t Ringo and Maureen, though) is my way of saying that we had a guest presenter in this week. The wonderful Laura Rawlings came to add some much needed DJ class to the programme, and was kind enough to bring some tunes in for us which feature amongst this lot. And everyone kept their clothes on. Thankfully.
