  • ‘Thanks very much Andy [Kershaw]. Another two hours of glistering new gold. And this is a voice which sent Andy scurrying from the acoustic stage at Glastonbury with near indecent haste’.
  • Two recordings are available. The first recording lasts just over 47 minutes starting at the Pulse 8 track and ending at the Repulse track. The second recording includes the complete show.



(JP: ‘Well I still have a soft spot for the old boy.’)

(JP: ‘Thanks very much Peter. I have to admit that the audiences for this programme have dropped below 10 million as well.’ This is in response to an item in the news which mentions that BBC One TV were axing “That’s Life" because of falling audiences.)
(JP: ‘Play us a tune Mr piano man.’)
(JP: ...‘and the motor cycle noises taken from the TT Races this summer, recorded by Andy Kershaw for Graham Webster of Leyland.’)
(12:30 news)
(JP: ‘Well the speakers here in the studio certainly sat up and took notice in the course of that.’)
(JP: ‘Last from Rollerskate Skinny and their debut session for the programme, that’s called Violence To Violence. Stirring stuff throughout. I have to say that I do prefer it when bands do something which isn’t immediately available on record. What I really want them to do is like covers of Duane Eddy numbers but I realise that’s a little childish and a little unlikely as well.’)

(JP: Thanks very much for listening to this and I’ll be back with you on Friday night at 11 o’clock. It’s over to you Claire.’)
