Olaf Furniss .
This broadcast generated one of the largest listener responses in the history of BBC Radio Scotland's Radio Cafe. The discussion is about decade-defining albums and was aired at the beginning of the year.
The presenter is Claire English and the other guests are Richard Havers and Jane Graham. Olaf makes the point that the Scissor Sisters ripped off the Nolen Sisters. He cites Rammstein at Roskilde as a live highlight of the 90s, while Jane talks about Oasis. Describes Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom Of The Opera as disgusting. Selects The Specials' Ghost Town as the defining track of the 80s, then goes on to state that people who constantly talk about "the kids" not having a clue. He makes the point that the 70s was not just about punk and describes glam rock as worthless.
Jane lets herself down with predictable Weegie crap about Edinburgh not having good bands, then invokes the word "kids"...
