Comments
  • Best sessions of the year and the start of the 1985 Festive Fifty.
  • Mentions he doesn’t appear to be on Cliff Richard’s mailing list any more.
  • Says he has never played two of the records on the show that are in that year’s countdown and he still doesn't have a copy of one of them. The two Sisters Of Mercy tracks in that year's F50 seem to have been the two.
  • Had to get the single version of the Husker Du Track out of the BBC library after his was stolen in Amsterdam.
  • Before #42: "Serves me right for saying this was my least favourite Fall track of all time...”
  • Files 1 and 2 consist of a continuous section of the show from around half way through the sessions.
  • File 3 contains the whole Nightingales and Triffids sessions followed by 9 of the F50 tracks, in better quality though with no JP links.
  • File 8 contains only the F50 tracks with no links but of arguably better quality
