Freddie Mercury: I can’t hear the damn thing.
Kenny Everett: It’s over now. You should wear headphones.
Freddie Mercury: Oh I hate those things!
Kenny Everett: I know it kinks your hairdo, but they’re handy and you can hear what you’re saying through them. I feel naked without headphones [More laughing] Right, it’s thirteen minutes to four and we’re going to sing along at the end of this show ladies & gentlemen, we’ve decided to join Bill Grundy in his cell, for doing naughty things on the wireless. We’re going to sing live, the end of Bohemian Rhapsody.
Freddie Mercury: So get your vocal chords ready.
Kenny Everett: Yes, because we want you to all join in with us, because it’s nearly Christmas and you can let yourself go. The end of Bohemian Rhapsody, if you forget how it goes, it goes like this…
Freddie Mercury: Oh God, you’ve put me in it!
Kenny Everett: I don’t remember that bit. [Laughter]
Freddie Mercury: Nothing really matters to me [Sings the line].
