(JP: 'Radio 2-style link coming your way, so be warned....And amongst the other things that I like, eating and sleeping!')
  • Earl King: Eating And Sleeping (unknown source)
  • VCF: 'Journey Through Life (12"-Neon EP)' (Magnetic North)
(JP: 'Another terrible link coming up in a moment. It's kind of catching: once you've spotted one, you start looking for them all the time, and then of course, once you've got into a real habit of doing this, then you get a job as a proper DJ....And I wonder if that journey through life would ever take you to Idaho?')

(JP: 'Time, I think, that we started the lengthy campaign to get the band in to do another session for the programme...I always recommend that your Fall LPs, if you leave them for like a year, eighteen months or something, and then go back to them, they sound like new records. They do: it's a wonderful thing.')
(Speaking of sessions, the astonishing book by Ken Garner will be released some time. If you go into your shops, whatever word they use in publishing, will be in your shops sometime in September. We'll probably have competitions and things to celebrate its release around that time, but I've got a finished copy of it myself, and it really is an astonishing work. I've already found it very useful indeed. It's not just sessions for these programmes but sessions for all of the things that have been done for Radio 1 over the years. I mean, not going right back to the days when the Northern Dance Orchestra did covers of Jimi Hendrix numbers, although I wish it did in a way. I wish I'd got tapes of some of those. My goodness me, you'd have loved them.')
(JP: 'This is another one of the records that I found in the course of my search for something that I've already found: I'm not going to go through all of that again.')
