An hour of the second half of this show is now available. Tape flips and some tracks missing.
John mentions he had been entertaining a couple of 16 year old half-Finnish women during the previous nights show (02 January 1980). 'They were very polite, nice people. But when Mike Read came in, they went barmy... being terribly flirtatious, excitable, New Years kisses, all that kind of thing'.
Closes the show apologising for being 'more lugubrious than usual'.
JP: "I'd forgotten actually that the Donna & The Kebabs acetate that she had brought me, oh months ago, she had mislabeled everything. All the titles were mixed up and in the wrong places on the record. I could smack her little bottom for her. Anyway this is Girl On The Run, I hope..."
JP: "...so what you're trying to say is, as I understand it, that you will walk me home? That's most accommodating. Those are The Adverts, and that's the last from them, and the last from their last session clearly as the band has broken up."

JP: "..and I'm sorry if I have been, or may have been anyway, more lugubrious than usual. This is because of course, I am disappointed as I always am on Thursday nights 'cos I shall have no contact with you until Monday. Probably won't turn up then anyway. On Monday night we have sessions from Simple Minds and The Mekons... you better be there on Monday or there will trouble you know."
