(JP: ‘This is the Future Sound Of London and yet in a rather special way it isn’t.)
(JP: ‘Is ridicule more effective than bad temper? Discuss.’)
(After letting it play for about 30 seconds JP re-starts the Trumans Water single at the correct speed.)
(11:30 news)
(JP: ‘And you’re back with the Peel wing ding: another centre of stability.’)
(JP: ‘While you are considering all of the new formats and I know that you all will be because you can’t wait to get into them if I know you. Whether you’re gonna have the XKE or the BRM or the ERA or whatever it is you're gonna go for, consider this the 5 inch single. This is from the Melvins.’)
(JP: ‘Of course there was an earlier Snatch, back in 1977, who went like this.’)
(1:00 news)
(JP: ‘Just had a phone call from BBC2 Television, from the continuity announcer there, getting ready close down and wanting to know what I’d got in the rest of the programme. So I told him, and I’m now looking forward to hearing what he’s got to say’.)
(John plays the TV on the radio)
(JP: ‘Incidentally Lynn Parsons came in just a second ago to tell me that she’s majoring on Cher in tonight’s programme but has promised a Des O'Connor track during the programme at some stage. So looks like another night without sleep for me.’)
(JP: ‘...7” EP yet again. Vinyl of course is finished, they keep telling you. There’s only been two CDs in this programme so far. We fight the good fight.)
(JP: ‘And the last record in tonight’s programme and we’re going to have time to play – well most of it.’)
