Show Notes

As Omicron starts to cause havoc for theatres and venues across the UK, Charles and Graham revisit the race to be Christmas Number one. Graham, at last, gets to reflect on Ayn Rand and her novel Atlas Shrugged and the way it documents the faded and fabled American Dream and reveals the political emptiness behind it. Charles and Graham review  Spielberg's remake of West Side Story. Graham and Charles ponder the relative low key success and general disparity between one side of the Pennines and the other when it comes to band success, as Graham reports on seeing I Like Trains live in Leeds.
