Announcer: "In a couple of minutes' time on Radio 1 247 and VHF, John Peel with his programme until midnight, and on 1500 metres Radio 2, the News Huddlines, the show with ten legs, and the Late Show."'
News with Don Durbridge: negotiations for majority rule in Rhodesia.
Start of show: "Well, here we are again, eh? Huddled around a camp fire with the stench of incinerated bacon in our nostrils, ready for another two hours of unloved records and a burst of opinionated and uninformed comments. Tonight among the records, such folk as XTC, Mike Spenser & The Cannibals, Kevin Coyne, the Byrds, Eno, Bongo Gene and Brinsley Schwarz. We also have an excellent session from Martin Carthy. But first, the hottest platter in town."
Martin Carthy, #8 (rpt). Recorded 1977-12-07. No known commercial release.

(JP: 'Producer Tony Wilson just asked me if there was an amusing story I could tell because we've got about a minute of time to kill at this stage of the programme, and as the only story I can think of would reflect without any credit at all on him, I'd better not.')
