This week's guest announcer is Alex Mazonowicz from Asia.

For those of us who couldn't quite get up with it. 50 minutes of songs from the madcap laughterers and hanging heroes of pop.

1) Deutscher Girls, Adam & The Ants, 7", CBS, 1978
Stewart Leslie Goddard, aka, Adam Ant, lost his rag and walked into a boozer in Camden with his dad's WWII starter pistol (having already thrown a car alternator through the window). Apparently, he had become agitated when patrons of the pub derided his appearance. Ridicule is nothing to be scared of, surely.
