Comments
  • 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."

Sessions

  • Martin Carthy, #8 (rpt). Recorded 1977-12-07. No known commercial release.

Tracklisting

(JP: 'And that's William Ravenscroft the trainee football hooligan, who has a nasty way of getting up around this time to listen to his father's radio programmes.')
(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.')
