What with Spitting Image trending and whatnot today, the show always reminds me of Steve Davis’s puppet formally opening Phoenix FM’s online radio station in June 2001. Steve, who had a show on the station, couldn’t make it – although weirdly, among a small smattering of local dignitaries David Soul from Starsky and Hutch turned up.
The puppet sat in my house for about a month and I originally put it at the head of my dining table. My then-3-year-old son took one look at it and ran out of the room screaming. I had to put it in a cupboard after that.
