(JP: "Now a bit of a story for you here. It seems about 3 or 4 weeks ago Bill Drummond was listening to this programme, in his bath it was the way it was told to me, and he heard me playing a track by Extreme Noise Terror, and he had the idea of getting them to work with him and the KLF, to rerecord 3AM Eternal for the Christmas Top Of The Pops. Now if you watched the Christmas Top Of The Pops, you'll know that this actually never got shown, but I was sent an acetate of it, which disappeared into the internal Radio 1 Christmas post, and has not as yet resurfaced. So this afternoon before the match at Portman Road I met up with Dean from Extreme Noise Terror and he gave me his tape of it. And so here is ....")
(JP says he has been trying to get in touch with the band to record a session but no-one answers the phone)
(JP: "And my thanks to those who voted for me in the Melody Maker Poll. I don't usually talk about those things, but in these combative times we're expected to brag like mad, so, I have the most talked about genitalia on 1FM, and the programme's tripled its audience in the last year.")
(JP: "the first genuinely extraordinary record of 1992 coming up... Most of you are going to go mad for this")
