BBC session 1985
Recorded for Andy Kershaw show
Broadcast date : 1987-07-20
Garners "In Session Tonight" documents the recording studio as
Y2 in Stockport (Manchester), but no other details - including
the actual date of recording - are known.
The Ramones were in Europe (touring) in June & July 1985. This
is probably as close as we can guess for the recording date.

t01 is *probably* in mono because I had FM reception issues. Presumably,
by the time t02 and t03 were broadcast those issues had disappeared,
since the recording quality of t02 and t03 is just fine.
