  • Tape inlay reads 'late November 86.'
  • Several Peel Sessions releases are played, including one for the taper, who seems to have been recovering from an operation.
  • Dating approximate, with the boundary between the shows informed by the plays of tracks on UK shows which tend to be lagged by a week on BFBS

Tracklisting

29 November 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'Unhappily, as I understand it, Half Man Half Biscuit no longer exist. I think one of them got fed up with touring and so on, and just wanted to sit at home and watch television, and I must admit it's an attitude with which I entirely sympathise.')

06 December 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'What an awe-inspiring record that is!...Now that I've sort of got the contacts there, I shall be able to get records like that on a fairly regular basis. If there are regular cover versions of things in Cantonese, or indeed in any other language, I shall be the man to play them, for sure. My idea of a good time, definitely.')

Footnotes
  1. Gedge's introduction, "This is a William Shatner number," may need some explanation. It was written by James Kirk (Shatner's character in Star Trek), a member of Orange Juice.
  2. A Cantonese version of Madonna's Material Girl, which includes the altered (in every sense of the word) lyrics, "I get the itches when the temperature rises / The weather situation gets worse and worse / And my body explodes at 200 degrees." Apparently.
