  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 2(ii) of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • Two tracks by John Fahey, one of them a version of Sam McGee's "Knoxville Blues", originally recorded in the late 1920s. "A Mosquito Ate Up My Sweetheart" was a song from the same era, recorded by Cajun artists the Segura Brothers[1].
  • The show was highlighted by Richard Williams in his 'This Week's Sounds' column for Radio Times. Williams mentions that the programme will feature "..a 20 minute piece - largely consisting of free improvisation.." by Matching Mole, as well as Pete Atkin "...with songs from his next album (which must make him rich and famous)."[1]
  • Cover versions of Chuck Berry's "Sweet Little Rock And Roller" (1959) by Dave Edmunds and the Dixie Cups' 1964 hit "Iko, Iko" (a "mysterious" New Orleans Mardi Gras song[2]) by Long John Baldry.
