(JP: "In this studio here at Peel Acres I record programmes for radio stations in Germany and Finland, amongst other things, and every once in a while when I've mistimed things - and often that is the case - I have to leap up and find a record out of the shelves behind me to put in the programme. Because of my extraordinary economy of style in tonight's programme, I have got time to put in an extra tune, so I rushed in there and thrust my hand into the shelves and pulled out record number 2862 - I'm enough of a twerp to have filing system for them - and record 2862 a bit of a kind of krautrock classic really - Tangerine Dream's Electronic Meditation - which had got a balloon fixed into the cover of it, and my balloon is still there, green and of course pretty much rigid now - whether you cared about that... But here are some moments from the LP anyway.")
