Tracklisting

12 February 1988 (BFBS)

(JP: 'One of the few bands, if not the only people, on the record to actually make the song sound as though it was written by them.')
(JP:: 'The very best record of all time, as far as I'm concerned. In case it sounded a bit scratchy to you, the reason for that is that it's a bit scratchy because I played it from the LP that I bought when it first came out and used to play it at home, and when it got to...the twangy guitar bit in the middle, I just turned it up, louder and louder and louder as it went on twanging. My dad used to go mad, banging on the wall, either that goes or I go. That's the reason why it sounds very scratchy, but particularly at that point.')
(JP: 'Sorry guys, end of programme.')
