Bizarre, but at least I'm not going mad - I was pretty sure that the
Millennium had got set back about 10 years, and then the 'anecdotes', like
how his dad had loads of Charlie Kunz records, how he wouldn't have liked
Panacea and then he played David Gerhaghty's request for his friend moving
to Glasgow...
from the website, it should have been a live dj set from Tony Surgeon... I
must say this is the most bizarre bit of programming I've every heard at
Radio One - usually if there's even a short-notice crisis, they find
someone to fill in, after all there should be some sort of playlist that
the producer has. I know that Peel chooses all the records himself and
Kevin Groaning probably wouldn't make quite the right selections for Peel
listeners, but you'd imagine that Lammo would have hung around and filled
in. Maybe he had a prior engagement?
