Tracklisting

21 August 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'Already the birthday presents started to pour in as a result of my fairly heavy duty prompting over the last two or three programmes. Of course, this always pleases me enormously.') [1]
(JP: 'My usual advice to popular entertainers is, don't tangle with Velvet Underground songs, but in this case I don't mind at all.')

28 August 1986 (BFBS)

04 September 1986 (BFBS)

(JP: 'Don't these people realise that popular music's supposed to be serious?...If I don't talk too much, I'll play you another track from that before the end of the programme.')
(JP: 'Another band from somewhere in Germany. Where the band come from I simply can't tell you. Perhaps you don't care, I don't know. All this geographical stuff isn't all that riveting, I suppose.')
