17 July 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'Too much of it about if you ask me: people talking in the streets, combing their hair. I'd put an end to it if I was you.')

24 July 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'This next is for Alan Smith who writes to me from Nicosia, who doesn't like Bog-Shed, so naturally there's a Bog-Shed record coming up shortly, but not just yet. Instead, I'm going to play a record he actually wants to hear.')
(JP: 'At this very moment, Bog-Shed are in studios in London recording their third session in a year for my domestic radio programmes, the first band ever to do three in a year. Not even the mighty Fall have done that, although they've just become the first band ever to record ten sessions for the programme. This is most interesting, isn't it? Especially as most of you'd never get to hear them anyway.') [1]

31 July 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'I think if he were to do that on the streets of London he'd be detained, and quite rightly so. I don't see that that's going to leap into my list of all time favourite records, but as I say, I exist only to please you, the listener. Now something relatively conventional.')

  • Many thanks to taper.
  1. Unfortunately, John is wrong on all counts. Fairport Convention had recorded five in 1968 and eleven overall. Bog-Shed's third session was recorded on 17 July 1986, but was only their second in that year. The Fall's tenth was recorded on 29 June.
  2. Recorded on a portable cassette recorder at the Hotel Slavia in London. A Beach Boys "cover."
  3. This band come from Dusseldorf in Germany: John informs us that he spent his summer holidays there once, and it rained "without cessation." He also mistakenly announces them as Hooverbeat (the label name).
