I’m sure the heads at the BBC said that many times in order to protect us from lewd, crude and offensive tracks, and I’m sure we are grateful for their protection. But all is not as it would seem David Clark will explain. Literally thousands of tracks have been banned - some for the most bizarre reasons. So sit back, let’s reminisce, and enjoy. Talk length - 29 minutes.

What a roller-coaster life Vince Eager has enjoyed. The story starts with Vince singing in the church choir as a six year old and takes us to his early teen years when he discovered skiffle. By his late teens Vince is beginning to mix with BIG NAMES - but he still has to go home to Grantham and ask his parents before he can move to London to take up the contract that would help put him on the map. Spangled with name dropping – a great talk. Talk length - 44 minutes.
