John Peel introduces a look at the records made by Clive James - who wrote the lyrics - and Pete Atkin, who composed the music and performed the songs. Though never a pop success in the sixties and seventies, their work is remembered fondly and is now receiving fresh interest through reissued albums, a website and reunion concerts.
