  • Best sessions of the year were broadcast in the first part of the show, and the combined numbers 40 to 36 of the yearly and all-time Festive Fifties in the second. Until recently, only the chart rundown was available. However from early February 2010, a new recording became available, including edited highlights of the session tracks and records portion of the show.

Best sessions of the year and the odd record

1982 Festive Fifty: Numbers 40-36

  • JP: 'This is, in a sense, a new entry, though it's not a new record.'
  • 40 (AT): Clash, 'Armagideon Time (7 inch-B side of London Calling)' (CBS)
  • 40 (FF): Clash, 'Rock The Casbah (LP-Combat Rock)' (CBS)
  • 39 (AT): Siouxsie And The Banshees, 'Jigsaw Feeling (LP-The Scream)' (CBS)
  • 39 (FF): Jam, 'The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had To Swallow) (7 inch)' (Polydor)
  • 38 (AT): Joy Division, 'Isolation (LP-Closer)' (Factory)
  • JP: 'I was very very pleased to see this at number 38 in this year's chart, should have been higher in my estimation, but I'm glad it was there at all.'
  • 38 (FF): Serious Drinking, 'Love On The Terraces (7 inch)' (Upright)
  • (Simon Bates trailer for Frontline, a current affairs programme.)
  • 37 (AT): Sex Pistols, 'Holidays In The Sun (LP-Never Mind The Bollocks' (Virgin) (However, John appears to be playing a rather poor off-centre pressing, which thus could have been from the 7 inch.)
  • JP: 'Although you obviously don't agree, I still think that's their best record.'
  • JP: 'At number 37, very pleased to discover this.'
  • 37 (FF): Cocteau Twins, 'Wax And Wane (LP-Garlands)' (4AD)
  • JP: 'One of my favourites of the year, I must say.'
  • 36 (AT): Undertones, 'Get Over You (7 inch)' (Sire)
  • 36 (FF): Musical Youth, 'Pass The Dutchie (7 inch)' (MCA)
  • JP: 'It would be sad indeed, I think, if they disappeared without a trace after that.'
