Thanks Mike & Jasmine for tuning in -- hope you enjoy the loosely-themed octopedal / early 80s / turtle programme I have in store!

Hi Sharon - thanks for listening. I thought of Tortoise, too -- but only after packing by bag and arriving at the station. Another time!

The Dead of course, nice

It was inevitable, really -- particularly since it's the 40th anniversary of the album.
