Darad commented on the above recording:
Check out that audio. I am pretty sure that was me that put in that request for us down at Fast Food Ranelagh as that’s where I worked at the time and we always phoned in requests to Energy. Sometimes I’d cycle down there and get goodies thrown down to me from the third floor whilst Rick Dees was on!
