A bunch of radio tape rips from back in the day. Many of these have been posted before, and are here again for anyone who may have missed them. They’re interspersed with a handful of new nuggets, too.

Plenty of Mike Allen from Capital Radio in the mid-80s. A particular highlight, meanwhile, is the earliest known recording of Westwood on the London pirate LWR waaaay back in July 1984 – unless anyone has one from even earlier??
