Now, to clarify, the aim here was not to roll out William Shatner doing “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” for the 100th time. No: we set ourselves a challenge to dig deep and find tracks that might, actually, possibly, be rather good. And, if you’ve ever combed the output of those celebritied greats, you’d know this is no mean feat.
So, who are we playing on this celebrity special? Well let’s not name names and ruin the surprise, but how about a celebrity food critic, a notorious former London madam? A world-renowned comedian? The calypso efforts of one of Hollywood’s greater actors?
As one fine messenger to the show put it: “you are giving me an education I never knew I wanted”. Quite.

AKA “Moog & Willies”. With typical technical finesse and the professional presenting abilities of Alan Partridge, we crash into another week with the erstwhile Ed Zed tucked under one arm to bring you another series of selections and banter as only we can. This week differs from usual shows, as Ed steps into Tom’s shoes to handle selection duties – a situation brought about by Tom originally not planning to appear due to gigging commitments with Pama Int’l, only to have it cancelled due to a support slot with The Specials (Pama, not Tom – he wishes!). So, with Ed stepping up with anything from classic Roxanne Shante to a highly obscure piece from Paul Simon (!), this is… well… much like our usual shows, really. We do also stride into the world of advertising as we force Ed to record a voiceover live on-air. The fame! The fame!!

Featured video this week was going to be this rather excellent Richard Edson showreel, but sadly we can’t embed it on this site. So, in its place is Ed’s Golden Earring selection, as it got cut slightly short and is rather ace:
