The Sort of Guy Who Could Be Stuart Maconie

Okay, so Katie was doing the crossword on the train up from London. Having a little trouble. So she was very happy when the middle aged bloke opposite her took an interest and turned out to be very good, getting words like “Caliph” straight away, and also “Pachyderm” and “Marquis”. She did briefly think he was the “sort of bloke who could be Stuart Maconie” (I do bang on about his radio show quite a lot). Well he made the mistake of mentioning a couple of books that he’d written when Katie asked. When she told me that he had been reading Record Collector it started ringing alarm bells, and yes, it was Mr Freakzone himself. Nice one, Stu, I’d never have got “Caliph”.
