This week on Plato's Retreat, Kris and Rob are still Sam-less (and Pearl-less too), and yet they endeavour to offer up another tasty selection of music, sports, and Emmerdale for the week...helped along by Fin from 16 Tun bringing in not 1, not 2, but 3 beers for the Flagon Wagon.

Drawing winter to a close, Kris and Rob (and Pearl from 5:30) return after a rude root canal catastrophe prevented last week's show, and a few of the listenership kindly share some of their own dental distasters.

Rob fires up Sport and Emmerdale (now also uploaded as its own segment), and the crew are all happy to welcome back the Prodigal Son of Beer, Finn Dingle, who joins them for the 16Tun Flagon Wagon beer review.

Crikey me old mucker! Kris and Rob bring you another edition of Ye Ol' Plato's Retreat.

After initially bowing to audience pressure to play a song that Kris did not want to play, the boys were repaid in kind by some lovely words of support from the listenership. 

Pearl pops in to find the studio cheese-less, but luckily there is still beer thanks to 16 Tun and the very special guest beer reviewer Celia. 

And of course there are the regular SPORTS and EMMERDALE bulletins to keep you updated on those fronts.
