  1. An anecdote. In London, Capital Radio (194) was on the rise, attracting listeners away from the BBC. In the 9am to 11 (12?) slot they employed veteran broadcaster Michael Aspel. He was one of the BBC announcers in the 1950s/60s who had to dress formally to read the news. The Capital programme had a ‘listener request’ segment. A guy phoned in and gave a heart breaking story about his failing marriage, and how, despite adversity, they had somehow reconciled and were going to give it another try. They were together again and could Michael play a song for them? Unfortunately, unbeknown to Aspel, the track cued up was … “The Bitch is Back”
