#Quote
1[on his taste in music] I'm not really into trance but other than that I don't mind. A listener called Peter used to phone into my Radio 2 show whenever we played hip hop, saying: 'There's no place for this on Radio 2'. We now do a little feature called Educating Peter where we play a different urban track each week and get a response from him.
