...the one where Paul didn't get excited about the Olympics

1 hour, 56 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 22 July 2012

This week Paul gave us an update on his huge gas bill, reminisced about visiting the Isle Of Man in the 1960s and read out an email from a 20 year old listener - yes 20 years old!

The All-Star Triples came courtesy of X-Factor winner Leona Lewis and Art Garfunkel, and with the London 2012 Olympics just days away, BBC TV's music for the 1976 Winter Olympics was the Lost TV Theme. The Mystery Year was 1963 and from that year Paul played The Vernons Girls' 'You Know What I Mean'.
