A story-cum-intro told by Jake on 'Jake Thackray and Songs', BBC TV - 3 February 1981
A lady over there asked me for a sort of request, er, to sing a song. It’s very flattering to be, you know, asked to sing songs. I’m not going to sing the one that she asked me for because, er . . . well I can’t actually – I can’t remember a lot of the words, see, you know, and its, er . . . But I’ll tell you what, look, erm, if it’s any consolation, the one I’m going to sing will have a lot of the same . . . notes.
