Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 160

We'd like to dedicate this week's show to Ronald "Peachy" Muggeridge, who on this day 50 years ago invented the Wasp Vector Syringe. This invention and the subsequent development of the Bolton Pie Capacitator have had a huge impact on the way we live yet many people are unaware of the work he did ant the world famous Dandridge Kweef Institute.

It may only be the Numanoids among you who know his name in passing as Gary Numan was the first person to try and develop an automotive fuel injection system when he fitted the Wasp Vector Syringe in his Hillman Imp in the summer of 1974. His smash hit single "Cars" was written as a tribute to the great man.

If you want to learn more Google it, it's a fascinating story.

Enough history, here's transmission 160.
