Angry Chicky Boil-Ups

Good Evening, 

I'm in the middle of preparing my Angry show for Radio Nowhere, which will go out at 10pm BST on April 6th. It's a tricky thing, asking for angry requests. I don't think I really like angry music very much, and if you dedicate angry songs to people it sounds like you don't really like them. With this in mind, is there anything you want me to play which, if I dedicate it to you, won't sound like I hate you?

Meanwhile, I've been in Margate all day, which is a formerly splendid seaside town in Kent. It's full of poignant reminders of its glorious past. I bought some 1950s birthday cards in a junk shop and went to this amazing grotto. Tonight fended off the rain to see fantastically energetic Wet Paint supported by Sir Yes Sir (great name) in a pleasingly local venue.

Don't forget the clocks go forward on Sunday...
