VLC or similar player will handle .ram files.
Not too difficult to piece together an mp3 of all the parts.
All credit to Melinda.

As I was at a loose end, here's the interview parts as MP3:


Probably worth having as such given .rm and .ram files are becoming obsolete.

I'm trying to sort out Spiegalgate, Pingate, OwnRacegate & Guardian t-shirtgate into bite-sized posts & my brain hurts. :ahhh:

On a side note - why is there a small child on stage with a microphone?

Some unidentified school boy singing backing vocals on Panic, complete with hearing aid and bush in his pocket. I suppose the idea was to emphasise the school choir-like character of the "Hang the DJ" part?

Long story short:
Carl Lightfoot - had some small parts on Grange Hill and Byker Grove.
He attended a Newcastle theatrical school and was selected for The Tube probably due to proximity to the studio.
Started in Newcastle and moved to Edinburgh later in life.
Declined an invitation to a Smiths convention.
Story verified personally by a friend many years later.
Regards,
FWD.

It's weird to hear him in the transitional phase between how used to talk in the Smiths days and how he talks now with the weird gruff voice.

I've been listening to some 2008/09 interviews again lately and I really, really like his "gruff" voice.

Makes me wish he'd read the audio book of Autobiography himself.
He won't even carry his own bags at the airport.
