Steve: Email in if you know what on earth Karl is talking about.
Steve: I meet people on the street, they go, 'I wish I was Ricky Gervais's mate'. No you don't. Let me put your mind at rest now, you're not missin' anything. Am I right, Karl?
Steve: I forgot to bring in a Song For The Ladies this week so I thought I'd play a song for people who enjoy the work of Deep Purple!
