With this final collection of Spare Parts, and varying levels of relief, we arrive at the end of Nighthawks At The Diner, no wiser but at least eleven weeks older. With thanks to guest-hosts Andrea and Catherine, Sam and Martin conclude their ongoing disagreement about this album and swear to remain friends, or at the very least disagree in more varied ways next time. As always, thanks for joining us for this season of Song by Song, and we really hope you'll be back for Small Change in a few weeks time...
