File a begins - ISector section. File b begins - L070a section

(JP: ‘A gift from Belgium to us all’.)
  • A House: 'Endless Art (Female Version)' (Peel Session)
(JP: ‘And there’s been much talk recently, of course, about whammies and double whammies and I knew I had a record on the subject, and it’s taken me up until now to find it, and it’s by Freddy King.’)
(JP: Listen if I catch any of you listening to ‘The Word’ there’s going to be real problems. Watch it by all means, but listen to this.’)
(11:30 News)
(JP: ‘All kinds of complex things are happening in the studio at the moment. There's a callow youth lying on his stomach immediately below my feet trying to bring up the volume on the speakers in the studio so I can make my ears bleed. This is a track from the new LP by The Fall’.)

File b break in recording at 38:30 (end of L070a): file a continues

(JP: ‘Remember this golden gasser?’)

File b resumes with quote below L070b section

(JP: 'As you probably read in this weeks Melody Maker the band has lost guitarist Jill Emery as apparently this is because Courtney Love wanted to move the band in a pop direction. This is bad news, but anyway it’s a fine session. This is Violet.')
  • Hole: 'Violet' (Peel Session)
  • Hole: 'Forming' (Peel Session)
  • Hole: 'Drown Soda' (Peel Session)
  • Hole: 'Doll Parts' (Peel Session)
(JP: 'I suppose it was rather babyish of me to say that it was bad news that they were headed towards pop, but the point is there are so many people doing pop already and only one band doing Hole.')

File a break in recording (end of Isector section) at 01:33:11 into show and 1:37 into above track ; file b continues at 51:55 for another 32:20

(JP: 'It occurred to me while that was playing that if you are unaware of the changes here at 1FM, you'll have switched on at 12 o'clock waiting to hear Nicky Horne. He must be having a rotten time.')

File b (L070b) ends, after above quote and Fall outro, at 01:08am: file a resumes for another 31 minutes with L078b
