  • File of tape now available.
  • John is 'very taken' with Amazulu session poached from Kid Jensen - "One of those session where you go quite weak, really pleased that I got this out first."
  • Frustrated moan from John about the difficulty of obtaining obscure records whizzing round London on his bike eg: "Sex Werewolf For Your Love by Garth Annihilus on Bongo Brain Records, well I haven't got that... of course they could have been made up."
  • Most of the show and session tracks have been recorded, beginning and end of show are intact, but some tracks have been edited out of the original tape with the pause button, sorry about that.

Sessions

Tracklisting

(Intro: 'The Amazing Adventures of Flash Gordon' brought to you by 'Groves Emulsified Nose Drops')
(edit)
(JP: "Lenny Henry... recommended, to Kid Jensen, the work of the band Amazulu, he had suggested the Kid ought to get a session from them, unfortunately we stepped in first.")
  • Amazulu: Fussin' n Fightin' (session)
(Show trailer: Lenny Henry's Sunday Hoot)
(edit)
(JP: "Where is that album? That's what I want to know... Teriffic stuff I think.")
(JP: "While we're dealing with Scottish culture, there is a compilation LP of the best of the Skds which I haven't got to play to you although I wrote the sleevenotes. Rather vexing - I had to go into a record shop this afternoon to read them and see if they were as bad as I thought they were. They weren't for once, actually. Not terrific, but not as bad as some I've done.")
(edit)
(John says he has been on mailbag programme earlier in the day, and is impressed with the wonderful staff "...lots of attractive young pepole in pastel clothing... makes me wonder why this does not happen with this program, just Chris and myself and Brian, not that Chris and Brian arn't attractive and sometimes wear pastel clothing, but you get what I'm trying to say.")
(JP: "Quite expensive African import... it seems to be a show where I am basically talking about records I haven't got, it's been a very frustrating week really... I would like to be able to play you these records, even if they are terrible, something called Sex Werewolf For Your Love by Garth Annihilus on Bongo Brain Records, well I haven't got that... well course they could have been made up.")
(tape flip)
(JP: "Another from Amazulu, a ripple for them for doing this…")
(JP: "A note from a Martin Longley to tell me that Several Young Men Ignite Hardboard Stump[1], will be preforming at The Star Club in Birmingham… a legendary venue that is too, I went to see The Nightingales there.")
(edit)
(JP: "This is a superb band listeners, one of those session where you go quite weak, really pleased that I got this out first... very, very taken with all of this.")
(edit)
(JP: "Unfortunately when he woke up this morning, John Peel thought he was a map of the inland waterways of Hungary")
(edit)
(JP: "On tomorrow night's programme, Torsdag, it'll be Kevin Coyne and Pink Industry and whatever's left of me.")
(BBC Radio 2 News:
The efforts to get the Palestinians out of West Beirut go on
BR says they will continue to run what trains they can during the ASLEF strike, despite the cost.)
