A fun puzzle which made you feel that you would want to know more about a guest who would pick such an eclectic mix of musical styles.
The preamble pointed so blatantly to Desert Island Discs - perhaps deliberately to make you look for that and Roy Plomley in the extra letters, and overlook the fact that the other set were spelling out something as well. I so much wanted to write Roy Plomley under the grid that I spent time trying to pair up the deleted thematic items - RAP + PORT after all made RAPPORT, a synonym of HARMONY!
Reluctantly I accepted that it was ERIC COATES that was wanted, but then again since I am not currently submitting, it didn't really matter other than for personal satisfaction. Replies:
