Hey! I finally found it: an actual list of what John Lydon played when he was on Tommy Vance's Capital Radio show on July 16th, 1977. According to Simon Reynolds, this was when punk (at least in the UK) withered and died and "post-punk" took over. Whatever. An interesting list, nonetheless, even more so for an alleged punker in mid '77.

Tim Buckley - Sweet Surrender
The Creation - Life Is Just Beginning
David Bowie - Rebel Rebel
The Chieftains - Jig A Jig
Augustus Pablo - King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown
Gary Glitter- Doin' Alright With The Boys
Fred Locks - These Walls
Culture - I'm Not Ashamed
Dr Alimantado - Born For A Purpose
Bobby Byrd - Back From The Dead
Neil Young - Revolution Blues
Sex Pistols - Did You No Wrong
Lou Reed - Men Of Good Fortune
Kevin Coyne - Eastbourne Ladies
Peter Hammill - Institute Of Mental Health (Burning)
Peter Hammill - Nobody's Business
Captain Beefheart - The Blimp
Nico - Janitor Of Lunacy
Ken Boothe - Is It Because I'm Black
John Cale - Legs Larry At Television Centre
Third Ear Band - Fleance
Can - Halleluwah
Peter Tosh - Legalise It

Did you ever get a copy of the "Punk and his Music" tape? Because I'd love to get my hands on one...

Fodderstompf has a full transcription here: http://www.fodderstompf.com/ARCHIVES/REVIEWS%202/capital77.html but of course it's not the same ... I want the SOUNDS, man...
