From the biggest-selling single of all time, to the ninth-biggest seller of 1989: charity hit glut illustrated in a single stat. Pete Waterman – pop’s Mr. Rent-A-Conscience with three charity chart-toppers to his name – stressed at every turn that the whole thing was Bob Geldof’s idea. Perhaps he was aware of the potential for anti-climax, or perhaps just nervous of the cynicism likely to greet a record largely manned by the PWL roster. Either way this is the sound of a golden goose croaking its last (for a while).

Random start point, random guests, random topics.

So expect discussions of Milford Haven, the Timeline of Glaciation, some future missile and that even at Disneyland Paris there still sin’t nothing wrong with a little bump and grind.

Music comes from unmarked CD’s we found at home somewhere.
