I first met The Fratellis five years ago, outside the Queensbridge Hotel. They were here for The Big O Festival [an O-Week celebration tour thing that was never repeated], and my friend Steph and I walked past them on the way to the gig.

My new radio show, “Under the Covers” premiered last night, with only a few minor glitches [okay, so perhaps turning on the wrong mic at the start of the show is more than just a minor glitch, but let’s just try and forget about that one].
