Gideon Coe is standing in for Phill Jupitus that week, and our Gid is particularly shameless at getting listeners to send in anecdotes.

Back in the day, the 'chamber choir' at my school (i.e. the choir for people
who could sing well, i.e. not me) used to perform Beatles songs arranged for
male voice choir by the music teacher. A story that went into the annals of
history was that when they were rehearsing '8 days a week' the teacher
conducting called out the instruction that only the trebles and altos should
sing a particular line by shouting 'hold me, love me - boys only'.
