Guest DJ No 6 at uclaradio.com promised us an eclectic mix for his sixth Internet Procol Harum marathon on Saturday 30 March 2002, and boy, was it eclectic! With fellow-presenter Al 'One-Eye' Edelist, he had trawled the bargain bins of Procoldom and come up with some real surprises that even the most hardened Procoholic was surprised to hear. This confirms – if confirmation were ever needed – that ulcaradio has simply been one of the best-ever broadcasting shop-windows for Procol music. In a show lasting seven hours (with a coffee-break towards the end, when our noble presenters shared a small bagel on-air), we heard the following 111 rare, rare items.
