The Joe Elliott Show - Quotes

Show Intro

"Pipe down old chap and bring me my flagon of mead for I have a show to do and I can't possibly do it sober. Not this week it is after all Christmas. The season to be jolly. The season of goodwill to all men and all things and I am your Fairy Godfather. Actually that's not far off the truth because I am actually doing my first ever pantomime this Christmas. Thank god it's not some end of pier production. It's the Planet Rock panto where I am actually playing the Fairy Godfather. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Welcome everyone to the Christmas edition of the Joe Elliott show coming to you this week from the best pub in Ireland from Dublin's fair city. I am in the Burglar's Duck. So before I sit down with Sir Cliff with my Mistletoe and Wine let's get the show started with something a little bit more uptempo. Raising hell for you right now. Here is Sweet."

Show Outro

"Oh yes they're all up on the tables to that one right here in the burglar's duck. That is the Glitter Band with Just For You and before that The Zombies featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent with Christmas For The Free. Which brings us very nicely to the end of this Christmas edition of the Joe Elliott show right here on Planet Rock. I'm off to the bar to have a few scoops with my mates and then I shall be going home later on tonight to do my last minute present wrapping as I do every year. I shall be back here next week same time for my round up of the year 2013. Some great music and some great memories. I will leave you this week however with one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever written by one Mr Greg Lake. Until next week be good to each other and Merry Christmas."
