Viv's Radio Flashes

I once walked into a secondhand record shop in Manchester, only to hear Old Scrotum singing Darnin' Socks. Pay dirt! Viv's John Peel radio flashes. The shop owner said he'd record them for me if I supplied the tapes. I did. Next week the entire shop was gone, with its owner.

They wouldn't make the top ten, but surely it wouldn't hurt to slap the shows on a double cassette priced at 9.99.

I have a couple of these which I can tape for you, including Old Scrotum's Darnin' Socks. send me some details (reply to this) and I'll get you a tape.

I'm in Manchester, but I have never owned a shop, second hand or otherwise!

I have an extensive Bonzo and related solo member recordings.

I recently sponsored a distribution of a 3-cd set of the complete Sir Henry BBC recordings.

I am interested in completing a similar set of Radio Flashes. I have an excellent quality recording of the pilot show.

What do you have and when can I fly over (I am in the US)? I actually have some trading partners in the UK that would be happy to trade with you.

Please reply to me at thegrape at thegrape dot org.
