Word In Your Attic 65 (audio version) – Broadcaster and author Simon Mayo: rare sighting of ceramic Monty Python promotional foot

Scala Radio daytime host, podcaster, author – crime thriller Knife Edge just out! – and old pal Simon Mayo on his 1980 copy of Smash Hits (a shoeing for Dexys in the Hepworth singles column), old ’50s rock and roll, his ’70s jukebox singles, the ugliest bands of all time, some doorplates nicked from Radio One, how to get Paul Simon to sign things, the shortest track ever recorded (all one second of it), the first album he bought (£2.17) and the Greatest Record Ever Made.
