‘WE’VE been updating our archive in the Anorak Towers chill-out room.

Diddy swears us to silence about his Johnny Halliday collection

The new young buck in the marketing department has been critical of our collection of Perry Como classics and Dean Martin croons.

So we went out to get some new material. But what to buy?

Helpfully, the papers are full of the latest pop news, like the Sun’s story on Libertines frontman Pete Doherty.

Apparently, Pete is a bad lad, who has been in trouble with drugs and now faces a possible jail sentence after admitting in court that he was in possession of a flick knife when his vehicle was searched by police.

And the Star has a tale of the American entertainer P Diddy.

The story goes that, when his yacht was raided by a bunch of armed security guards, hard-man Diddy legged it wearing only a pair of stars-and-stripes boxer shorts and a fur coat.

Armed with this knowledge, we popped down to the local music shop and asked for the latest from Pete Doherty and for a collection of P Diddy’s greatest hits.

Imagine our surprise when the shop assistant told us that no such recordings existed. But he did recommend a new easy listening compilation called Summer Moods. You should try it…’
