The Radio Announcer worked for Radio Weatherfield and introduced the prize-winning entries in the station's short story competition. Mavis Riley and Victor Pendlebury had entered the competition with A Night to Forget and they were in the Kabin to eagerly listen to their entry read out by Sharon Elliott alongside a more cynical Len and Rita Fairclough. The announcer said that the judges had chosen three stories which in their opinion were not only of the highest standard but held out the most promise for the future literary careers of the writers. The four only listened to the purple prose for a couple of minutes before switching off as their enjoyment was spoiled by sarcastic interjections from a highly-amused Len and Rita.
