And then next week in the same slot:

In a series first broadcast in 2002, Tom Robinson assesses the legacy of punk rock.

This week also features Island Rock:

More details, though not much more it has to be said, can be found

Sorry I’ve run out of energy to list all of those links now but you can work out the rest for yourself I’m sure. Incidentally does anybody need advice on how to grab streaming media, convert it into other formats etc? I’m assuming everyone knows what software to use but if there is demand I’m happy to write up the various options.

Finally, and for no other reason than it being a great song, The Selecter performing On My Radio for Top Of The Pops in 1979 over at YouTube

    I’ve got a Sid Vicious documentary over on Fades in Slowly for anyone interested.

    Hi, the Brinsley Forde documentary ‘Island Rock’ was on BBC6 music recently but I missed the first two parts (no longer on Iplayer). Do you have them? I see that pt1 was already posted here at some point. Would be most grateful for a link or send of them. Thanks, P.
