The other day I saw a woman (white) driving an open-top car through my bit of lovely east London and ... well, she had rag doll mascot thing at the back of the car. It was a little Rasta figure.
As I recall it the car sound system was playing some nondescript R'n'B stuff. Whereas, what rag-doll woman should have been listening to was Dubpod #7. Why? Because ... it's beautiful.

Still struggling to get Kate Bush tickets? Oh dear. Missed out on those "secret" Prince concerts a while back? Oh no. It's such a hard world, isn't it?
Instead, all you have to look forward to is another Niluccio podcast. Oh, the misery. Well, don't despair, it's not just any old podcast.
