(JP: “I realized even when I speaking that last weekend when I played all the tracks from the new Pavement EP I was rather misled by the handwritten information on the label and actually gave all of the wrong titles. The one that I played you at the start of the programme was I think ‘Texas Never Whispers’ but last weekend when I played it called it something completely different. I must make a note to that effect so I don’t do it again.”)
(JP: on Andy Kershaw’s show the following evening: “Something which I’m looking forward to a great deal actually, a real curiosity I would suggest – Tony Benn MP in session, accompanied by Roy Bailey.”)
(JP: “And I’ve often thought in the past actually when I’ve been putting these programs together that I ought to give you the benefit of my great age and play you one or two records that I bought when I was sort of like 13, 14, 15, you know, back in the 1950s, a kind of ‘these I have bought’ feature. Whether I’ll actually carry it through, I’m not quite sure, because it’s been something that’s been at the back of my mind for many years now. But this is a record which entirely coincidentally came into my hands which was from that era, so I thought I’d play it to you anyway, having heard it as I was driving through Austria during the Euro Action Week and heard it played by a radio station based in Vienna.”)
  • Ted Heath & His Music: Hot Toddy
(JP: “Used to have that on a 78, listeners! … At the time it seemed like a really radical record and I suppose the only link between that and the kind of stuff I like nowadays is the fact that it was fairly repetitive. I’ve always like repetitive records.”)
