Spin Off - 1982 - Adrian Sherwood special (Steve Barker, BBC Radio Lancashire)



Big thanks for Jethro for finding this:

A rare recording of Spin Off from BBC Radio Blackburn (later BBC Radio Lancashire), featuring interview and music from Adrian Sherwood, presented by Steve Barker.

The interview dates from 1982-01-19, and the programme was broadcast a couple of weeks later, probably Tue 2nd February.

This is a fascinating piece of audio, I know of no other extant radio interviews with Adrian dating back to these very early days.

Recovered from 1/4" reel from Steve Barker's archive.
