  • The Search finally comes to an end as John finds the missing Little Richard cover version (see Little Richard Cover Search). The record also later turned up in John Peel's Record Box.
  • 45 minutes of the show originally made available by Isector. The SL_Tapes project provided more of the show and these were combined by RobF. Note though, the recording on File a is not in the correct sequence. The final part of the show is now available and completes the show



File a begins
Part 1 (00:00:00 - 00:09:01 on recording)
Part 2 (00:51:52 - 01:34:56 on recording)
Part 3 (00:09:11 - 00:51:52 on recording)
Part 4 (01:34:56 - 02:31:46 on recording)
(JP: ‘And you’ll notice that I’ve forsworn, in the course of the programme, to play any of those TT racing bike effects because I’ve had one or two letters of complaint particularly an aggrieved one from a French listener.)
File 1 begins during above track
(JP: During the Andy [Kershaw] and John programme from Glastonbury I played a record on Rainforest it’s an import from the United States of America, again, another 7 inch single, by The New Bad Things called 'I Suck'. And quite a few people wrote in asking to hear this again and wanting more information about it.’)[1]
(1:30 news)
(JP: ...‘that was the record I was searching for, for so long. The object of the search campaign that continued for about six months. Having found it, of course, my enthusiasm for continuing to look for it , if you see what I mean, has diminished somewhat but I will press on because I did come up with some interesting old records in the course of it.’)
