I have a cassette tape in to record while listening at this moment :D

There should be a listen again facility on the internet for a time.

Here's a link to the show.
There is the facility to 'listen again'
It's a very humerous interview..much in the spirit of Steve Wright.

This link might get you straight to the traffic report just before Leonard and Anjani come on (if you choose 'resume' but it might only work where I left off!!))

Hope it works
otherwise

Thank you Margaret, for ringing me up to tell me about this - I wouldn't have listened today! That was surreal, listening to Steve Wright interviewing Leonard. It felt like two of my worlds colliding. Brilliant. I am listening again now (ta for making it easy for me, Pete).

Even amongst the hilarious and irreverent questioning, Leonard manages to speak great truthes:

"It's a great luxury to have a simple life."

Yes, Steve is great, Paula, and he often plays some excellent music in the "oldies" slot. I've been meaning to compile my oldies for years to send in to his show. Most people from our isles in this place are quite posh and listen to Radio Four. They don't know what they are missing.

PS: To find the Leonard bit:

Damn!

"Steve Wright" ------ Is not "Steven Wright"!

Why do you people do this to me?

I got five bucks says you could still get him.

Gay Perry > That's funny. I got a ten, says, "Pass the pepper."
And a couple quarters, do harmony on "Moonlight in Vermont."

Harry > Huh?

Gay Perry> Talking money.

Harry > A talking monkey?

Gay Perry > Yes, a talking monkey. Ugly sucker.
Traveled here from the future. Only says: "ficus."

:lol: Thanks, Paula... I'll mark my calendar.


I didn't get a chance to listen well to this interview, I'll do that tonight. It was very quick-paced, fast moving, and Leonard and Anjani seemed to enjoy the spirit of it.

Really good interview. The bloke that chose his favorite oldies should have been shot but the interview was great.
