In which we salute the magnificent Peter Green (and hear Owen Parker’s memories of recording with him in the ’90s), look back at the great Q headlines – CarelessTalk Costs Wives! The Hoarse Foreman of the Apocalypse! – flick through a Melody Maker from 1970, spot the fake deejay, applaud the recent Springsteen radio shows and find Bob Marley & the Wailers photographed in lift.

  1. Just listening to the podcast and the part about musicians as DJs. The BBC has some history here, they made a series in the late 1970s (forget the title). I think it went out on radio 1 at about 7pm on Sundays. Among the interesting guest DJs I can remember were Ian Anderson, David Bowie, Frank Zappa for sure, others were possibly Lou Reed and I have a strong feeling Bob Dylan did it, but that might some old dude mind tricks going on. Anyway the first three are for sure, and I remember them as very interesting shows. Also there was a lot of humour, something Dylan displayed in spades on the Theme Time shows.
