Dialling 261 and listening to the radio on the phone. What the fuck was that all about?

Tremendous Knowledge Dave was always on during Bank Holidays.

Phil Wood always played some weird tap-dancing shite on a Sunday.

Wow, I'd forgotten about Umberto doing the show before Stannage. That was just before the Guinness fridge was plugged in under Stannage's desk and it all went completely tits up with the Salford/Ken Bigley on-air shit. Had a pint with James earlier in the week - he's in good form still.

Does anyone remember Dennis and Mosche, the alternative therapists? And Stella the medium?

The tap dancing was "Lullaby of Broadway" and was on Kiddy Fiddling Ray Teret's show mate.

You are right!

I remember being at West Ham away the day we got relegated in '87 and getting absolutely fucking lost outside the ground, couldn't find the car and lads I'd come with. A beautiful "261" purple sticker saved the day - knocked on the window and in I got. Happily it wasn't Ray Teret driving.
