Original Seeder's Notes:

This is from an original copy of the radio show. It has not been altered. It includes national commercials and the songs are grouped as they were in the broadcast. Nothing has been changed. I own hundreds of original radio shows which I am posting. I know there will be people who want them with the commercials edited out and the songs indexed. Could I do that for any certain one? Yes. Could I do that for hundreds? No. Also, I wanted to present them in their original format. You are welcome to edit it however you wish. I have included a copy of the original cue sheet. The info I am giving was either on the cues or on the discs themselves, but I have not verified it to be correct. It would not surprise me if it is not. Unlike what I have done with posts at other sites I will only be posting these once. Once they are upped I will be deleting the files. This particular says it was recorded at the Reading Festival on 24 August 1996. Original airdate was the week of March 24th, 1997. CD > EAC > FLAC 8.
