Saturday Morning, May 14, 1983 – Jim Dunbar
Kind of a strange mix here. An early Saturday morning --too early it seems-- set from Jim Dunbar which features: Siouxsee and the Banshees (Switch), The Minutemen (East Wind- Faith), MX80 Sound (More Than Good), Depeche Mode (an alternate mix of Get the Balance Right), Simple Minds (Premonition), Roxy Music (Just Another High), Dream Syndicate (That’s What You Always Say)…and just after Jim introduces the ‘News Blimp Goes to Hell’… the tape switches to something slightly noisy (was this taped off an AM station?), unintelligible at first…, until you realize it’s about 10 minutes of an episode of the National Lampoon Radio Hour which features a parody of AM Talk Radio in the 70’s among other things. No commercials, but around the 37 minute mark you get a sampling up and down the DC rock/pop radio dial. Then back to the National Lampoon which starts fading out at the end of the tape.
Many thanks once again Jim!
