Start of show: 'It's time to put on the mask and rubber gloves and enter the fever hospital of the airwaves. If you're listening in the hope of winning a trip to see Jason Donovan in Budapest, I'm afraid you're out of luck.'
Farm, #5. Recorded 1990-05-06. No known commercial release. The song named 'I Don't Know' was renamed 'Higher And Higher' when the LP Spartacus was released.
JP: 'Apologies for the rather curious start to the programme. My brain's floating in a bottle of cough linctus under the desk. I'm looking forward to a weekend in bed, really. That's what I need more than anything else.' 'Levellers 5 were praised on Kaleidoscope on Radio 4 this afternoon, which is a bit of a breakthrough.'
JP: 'Before I play you this next one by the Farm, I ought to read to you some paragraphs from an information sheet that the Farm sent to me. It says, "This session was dedicated to Ray Toohey, the Farm's technician and assistant keyboard player, who's currently serving two and a half years after a non-violent rooftop protest at Risley Remand Centre over food and conditions. He'll be listening to this session in his cell at HMP Armley, Leeds. He was found not guilty of the offence he was on remand for, but it seems that, post-Strangeways, the ten-hour Risley protest was seen in a different light by the authorities." Well, I hope you're enjoying the session, Ray.'

A blip occurs in the middle of the song (possibly by JP leaning on the turntable), after which John comments, 'I just bet you think that that record stopped and started again. Never happened. Simply never happened.'
JP: 'There's no programme on Monday because there's a Bank Holiday. There may be a breakdown in the logic of that, but I won't pursue it now.'
