    I just started listening to this episode of the podcast, so I may have more comments. YET, two quick notes. 1. Gerry’s totally right about the walking lanes; I’d add there should be a lane for idiots checking their phones while they walk (alternatively I should be allowed to knock them out of the way) and 2. the English musical journalist and dj Stuart Maconie claims that he started the Bob Holness urban legend when he was writing for the New Musical Express (though this has been disputed).

    Also I took the ending with the colorization stuff to be a riff on the adding colour to black and white movies. In the 80s, they began colorizing movies. It was controversial and not as successful as they would have hoped. The colours looked off.

      That’s the way I took it, as well. I don’t know what, if any, connection the show had with Turner Entertainment, but Ted Turner was a major force behind colorization in that time.

    • That’s probably more likely than what we said.
