Always sounds very strange to hear Peelie in these early years. Good upload :)

And another person on this broadcast is Alan Sondheim, the American poet-performance artist who I happened to be in Internet contact with him on another list. He listened to this and found it fascinating. It's a small world

A small world indeed, Martin. It's great to see that this upload has sparked interest amongst some of the artists that were featured on the show. One in the eye for the "internet downloads are killing music" school of thought, I reckon. For example, I had never even heard of Davey Graham before Colin sent me this show (shame on me), and having heard it I'm definitely going to be investigating what Davey stuff is out there to buy now.

Credit for preserving this show goes to Monni and her reel-to-reel tape deck. If you have Margrave of the Marshes on your bookshelf, look her up in the index.
