A throwaway comment by Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis kicked off quite a media storm – dubbed ‘womblegate’ – after he said he was ‘cross’ that The Wombles had been booked… although he was laughing at the time.

Mike Batt was interviewed on Aled Jones’ popular Sunday musical chat show on BBC Radio Wales. The one-hour radio show is available to listen again on the BBC iPlayer or to download as a podcast until 23 May.
