Russ card

If you frequent the Twitters, you might have heard of this Russty Russ chap. He posts items relating to retro television, and has a particular soft spot for the teletextual televisual treat that is that there telemetext.

…I dunno. Why are you asking me?!

Taken from Teletextr Podcast 03, recorded February 2016.
