Thanks for the publicity for the 1988-09-26 show, Adam: looks like I need it, with not a single download yet (or a word of recognition apart from your good self).
P.S. That originally came out as 'god self', which for you would have been appropriate too! Cheers buddy! ;-))

Thanks to you for getting in on the big box action.

Steve W said...

Yeah, this is a great one. Especially the Peel comment at the end.

Trying to sort out a Wiki entry and realized we already have one by Adam for the night of the actual show (rather than the broadcast).

So now have entries for both 29 August 1989 and 30 August 1989.

Thinking some sort of merger might be good, although haven't attempted this. Are you cool with this, Adam? Fancy doing it yourself? I can give it a go if you don't mind.

And thanks again to Steve (SIG) for the first from Colin's big box! Looking forward to more.

Bit busy at work at the moment, but I'm sure I'll squeeze in time to change the entry. Sorry I missed you on instant message earlier today.

Steve W said...

No problem on the instant messenger. Just wanted to say hi. Be good to catch up with you at some point.

I'm working a lot today as well -- don't what it is with Sundays -- as well as watching assorted Premiership footy matches. Currently half time in Villa-WBA.

On the Wiki thing, I was thinking it might be most straightforward to paste the contents of your current page 29 Aug onto a new page for a write-up on the Fall performance that night.

Then we can have links to that on the 30 Aug page plus the Fall page -- and reuse the 29th Aug page for that night's radio show (with a links on it to both the new page on the Fall 50th birthday set and the 30 Aug page.

Half time over.

ALERT: you might want to update the link for 1988-09-26, Adam, as I was not happy with the first effort (too much dropout) and have done better this time: The new link's on Wiki too.
