"Tom has eaten kidney and pigeon-pie, and imbibed coffee, till his little skin is as tight as a drum; and then has the further pleasure of paying head waiter out of his own purse in a dignified manner, and walks out before the inn-door to see the horses put to."
Are you under the illusion that one penny is worth 1p? If so, our show on the theme of Money this week will put you to rights. We've an interview with Hiram, an Edinburgh-based coin collector, a picture of whom you can see on our blog after you've listened to the show. We've got a track from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop that's played on tills, a song about a Securicor guard and a bloody great cover of Goldfinger. Sean finds out he payed more than he should have done for a Billy Bragg album and reveals the financial benefits of smoking, and Rosie is officially the richest person in the studio, home address supplied on request. Tropic Of Clyde this week is set in a creepy ossuary, where our hero Anselm makes a bad decision. Our theme-bola has decreed Cold to be the theme for next week, so send us your ideas on the blog or our Facebook page. Anyone know any polar explorers?16:00 - 17:00
