  2. I can happily recall hearing this broadcast on my local "cool" college radio station (WPRB Princeton University)and recording it onto an 8 track tape! XTC were the very first band I saw live (on a bill with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Jools Holland and His Millionaires) at the Capitol Theater in Passiac New Jersey in the spring of 1981!

  3. Live in concert--before pogo-ing fans--XTC is truly special (and appreciated!!) since we all know what a *short run* it was!

  5. Thanx! Saw them on the same tour as "Wilthomer", but at the Palladium in NYC. They were VERY loud but clear too. More XTC please!

  8. Great site! I always find something interesting.

    Haven't listened to XTC for years!
    Back in 1981/82 an old school friend of mine was in a 'one hit wonder' band who were on Top of the Pops with XTC amongst others. Andy Gregory went out of his way to chat to my friend and offer advice - unlike the Human League who were in full diva mode!
