808 State on KFM Radio: 10/4/90
Here's a three parter that kept me in stitches throughout my spring term at The University Of Sussex many moons ago. Pilfered courtesy of Gaz from Manchester, (where is he now?), it's three parts of the same show, albeit rather irregularly recorded. Part two, unfortunately, only comes through one channel, so I advise listening to it in mono. Anyway, pretty essential stuff, and full of memorable lines, from two of the lads in 808 State. "Spirograph Sharon", "GoGo MC" ("says he's going to pay the poll tax.You are sad GoGo MC . . ." "Eric Barker" and "The Hooded Posse" are just some of the characters that you'll come across while listening to this, as well as some excellent tunage. There is a site somewhere with tons of these sets on, and probably this one too, but like all of what I've posted on Mixcloud so far, these cassettes have a place in my heart, and whether they're already out there or not, posting them is just another excuse to listen to them in their original form one more time.
