7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Steely Dan (music round)
9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Bride Wars (pic round)
Ken Bruce favourites Steely Dan turn up in the Joker & Thief music round tonight. This is what it sounds like:
I don’t know how many of you listen to Ken Bruce – he does the mid-mornings on BBC Radio 2. Ken Bruce has no actual age – he has been exactly the same entity since he began broadcasting nationally in the early 1980s.
He is the overseer of Popmaster which is the daily music quiz that’s on between 1030 and 1045.
Don’t ever phone me between those times because I won’t answer, I’m doing the quiz.
If my wife is studying in the kitchen (she’s doing a masters) then she has to get out at 1028 cos that’s the time that I breenge into the zone, whap the kettle on and get the tranny fired up.
And I can hear you saying: “Come on Doc, tell us about your tranny. Give us some hardware detail.”
The machine I listen on (you would probably call it a “device” these days) is a Grundig Yacht Boy which used to belong to my dad and is now mine.
It sounds great but it’s older than me: I was born in the 70s and Yacht Boy was born in the 60s.
I love it and I will never chuck it out. even though the missus doesn’t like it (it’s “ugly”).
It’s half nine now, so let’s get this communication sorted so I can get ready for Popmaster.
A few stretches, a coffee, you know.
By the way, if you do like Popmaster, I sell scorepads on my other website. They are great.
See you later,
