FULL DETAILS - THU 3 JULY 1986

- The audio starts just after a record Walk On The Wild Side by Gerty Molzen. This appalling record was "just a taste of what is to come tonight" as it was James's last show before his 2 week holiday and so is playing a load of terrible records. He mentions that it is also the welcome return of Rita Roe's theatrical spot. He then went on to play Milligan & Nesbitt and "one of their timeless numbers" but didn't confirm which
