Lee Scratch Perry visits On the Wire



In memory of our old friend Lee here's the second half of a three hour On the Wire programme broadcast live on a Sunday afternoon on 16th December 1984.

It was Scratch's first visit to On the Wire. Also present was our late friend and super Scratch fan Roger Eagle who brought with him some rare Upsetter 45s to impress Lee. Scratch flipped though the stack and using a biro ticked the labels of the tunes he remembered (!) and approved of.

On the Wire will be presenting a more considered tribute to Lee "Scratch" Perry, one of the twentieth century's greatest record producers, in the near future.

Thanks to Jethro Engineer No.2 for archiving the show and also to Michael Hodgson and Patrick Dokter for safely transferring the audio from the original quarter inch tape source.
