Re(2): Listener 4394 Against Expectations by Duck

I found this quite hard to start with, mainly because a number of the easier clues led to entries that clashed and those clues whose enties did clash could not be any of the six 'rogue' ones as they had the extra letter in the wordplay.

This assumption led to a lot of head scratching trying to work out the advice given by these extra letters.

Then, unlike the apples, the penny dropped.

Sneaky, devious and ingenious - I loved it and particularly admired the rogue clues' construction, although I had to reverse engineer a couple of them.

P.S. Dave Hennings' animation on LWO is a work of art - when is the Turner Prize?
