Dave is in the studio in Harrow. He has an "interview with ELO" on a broken phone box (only Dave could do this... ) and then inevitably credits the next track wrongly. You may have to explain to your kids what a "phone box" is, what those beeps mean when calling from one, and what "Button A" and "Button B" are.

There's a Duracell Battery advert - involving miners losing power in their lanterns in the poorest possible taste of course. There is also a quiz about finding a bit of a Thameside Radio DJ which is hidden by the Hammersmith Odeon in the grounds of St Pauls church. (Sorry, let the answer slip out there).

The engineers have locked Dave in the studio so he can't nip out to the loo!

There's a Birdman advert for "At It" magazine. At the time a magazine about being "At It" was quite outrageous, but soon they were available. Life imitating art again.

Music includes Kraftwerk, Patti Smith, The Who and The Kinks.
