Call me clueless but I only remember Status Quo for Pictures of Matchstick Men. Still like the song and always wondered they weren't better known. Interesting back story.

Be careful about what you say about the announcer. I am pretty sure that is John Peel. He turned a lot of British kids on to some of the best underground music coming out of the UK at the time. RIP John. If I am wrong about it being John Peel then I am sorry.

The announcer at the end is so smarmy.
