The ONLY place that you could hear any DIY records was on The John Peel Show, and you would only get one chance. Luckily some of these bright shards of history were recorded, and
on this edition we get rare sessions from the great Eti Fits, and the Dodgems (as heard on Vaultage 78). Also there is a rare spin for one of the superb Absurd Records catalogue...."I like Bluebeat" by Cairo.....amongst others.
