Recorded this set at the end of April on Rude FM’s legendary frequency of 88.2, which they had held onto since June 1998 (after moving from the 104.3 spot that they had started out on in 1992). The station went off the air shortly after this recording was made and now the frequency is occupied by a Turkish pirate called Dost FM, so one can probably say that this is the end of an era! No DJ ID on this set, unfortunately.
