John Lydon appeared on the UK's Capitol Radio's Tommy Vance show on July 16th 1977 and horrified Malcom McLaren with his "tasteful" choice of favourite songs to play: Neil Young, Dr. Alimentado, Captain Beefheart, Peter Hamill and more. Has anyone ever heard this show? Is it available on a bootleg? To download?

Also, Lydon apparently guested on an LA radio station when the 'Pistols hit town in Jan/Feb. 1978 and, in between interviews, played tracks by Funkadelic and Tim Buckley. Is this true? I say "apparently" because I think I heard such a story via a third-hand source (or something like that). Anyway, the upshot of it is this: if anyone has copies of these two shows, or knows where I can obtain some, then email me at
