Well aren't you in for a treat - two old men talking about vinyl. Not to worry, Elis and John have got the usual wit and hijinks too, with tales of John's weekend wedding and some stories of wedding nightmares. After last week's controversy, Winner Plays On returns with some new topics, and we're introduced to Producer Simon as regular producer, Producer Dave, is away. Plus there's one of those most rare radio moments - a shout-out.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, Aberfan's first qualified cycling proficiency instructor. "

Conversations and riffs

John went to a wedding but was only the fourth most interesting person in attendance. The duo trade awkward wedding stories and give advice on Best Man's speeches.

Elis is a polo shirt top button done up type of guy but according to John it means "You're not sure if he's the politest, neatest man in the world or someone who's done a ten-stretch and has a shank on his person."

It's record store day soon and the guys talk about independent record stores. We find out that the first single John bought was Pato Banton's "Bubblin' Hot".

A shout out for some model engineers.
