Title - Corkscrews  

No John Gibbons this week (when will we all be together again?) but Neil Atkinson, Adam Melia and Stephanie Heneghan limp on. Neil has made the grave error of asking for listeners to suggest topics for discussion. Steph is looking for a corkscrew. Adam wants people to get the Gig Of The Week format soon. Elsewhere, John has a song from a listener though obviously Neil gets the name wrong. You don't get this on Annie Mac. You do get 10 great songs though. The Rider sort of unstoppable. Though it constantly breaks down.
