It’s the Intrepid Birdman’s birthday – so the first part of the recording has Bob chatting with the Birdman about records that have influenced him. We learn about Dave’s being a disco DJ and Dudley Moore. Bob mentions the Thameside birthday party the next day where listeners meet at Turnham Green station and look for the red dot on the map showing the location. I remember getting there at about 6:30 and seeing the station manager desperately trying the get the huge crowd of people out of his station forecourt.
There’s a fabulous superquiz and a sketch that implies that you can get away with anything if you wear a Thameside sweatshirt. Only £6.50.
