This was drawn by John Morgan who writes: “Just thought I'd let you know I did the cartoon for the Radio Scotland 242 Christmas card (fantastic to find it on your site!) and most of the ads in the first few editions of the 242 Magazine. I was the (one and only) Creative in Tommy Shields' ad agency, TVS Publicity, which did most of the print and design for the radio station.”
