Don't You Forget About Me - 4. The 12-Inch Single

DON'T YOU FORGET ABOUT ME - 4. THE 12-INCH SINGLE (320kbs-m4a/64mb/28mins)
BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 24th January 2019

From the mid-1970s the humble 7-inch vinyl single was joined by a much grander relative - the 12-inch single. It reached its peak in 1983 with Blue Monday by New Order, probably the biggest selling 12-inch single of all time.

Music Journalist and co-founder of ZTT Records, Paul Morley visits the Factory Club in Manchester to talk to Peter Hook of New Order about how Blue Monday was written and to designer Peter Saville about the famous sleeve.

Paul explores the origins of the 12-inch single as a potentially higher quality format than the 7-inch single and visits Abbey Road studios to watch an engineer cutting a 12-inch single; does it really sound better?

And he meets music producer Trevor Horn at Sarm Studios, home of ZTT records, to discuss the Frankie Goes to Hollywood 12-inch singles. ZTT released so many different versions of Two Tribes on 12-inch that the chart rules were changed - so was the record buyer getting value for money? And what does the 12-inch single tell us about 1980s excesses?

JAMES LAVELLE INTERVIEW + RECORDS (320kbs-m4a/96mb/41mins)


Nemone welcomes Unkle and Mo'Wax founder James Lavelle. An absolute tour de force in the Dance field (the scene, rather than an actual field) is in conversation with Nemone ahead of the release of Unkle’s 6th album 'The Road: Part 2'. Sure to be filled with collaborations, there can’t be many artists left that James hasn’t worked with. He says of this new record that it’ll be "more of a mixtape aesthetic being the ultimate road trip". And that’s handy as he’ll also be sharing with us a career spanning mix. Plus he's bringing along some UNKLE exclusives and unreleased tracks and remixes.

His label ‘Mo’Wax’ - which he set up with Tim Goldsworthy - first signed DJ Shadow. They also released the likes of Money Mark, Luke Vibert, Rob Dougan (Clubbed to Death), Blackalicious, and of course UNKLE. And the fact that debut album Psyence Fiction is 21 years old might come up as well. Much to discuss

"I'd heard on Peel's show during the week that Steve's guest for that weekend's show was AMS so when the appointed day came I caught the train from Birmingham New Street up to Manchester Piccadilly, armed with my twin tape 'ghetto blaster' and a couple of Maxell XLII 90s, and recorded the show as best as I could. I recently passed these recordings on to Mr Binks, as part of his OTW archive project, and he's sharpened the sound up as best as he could and this is the result." - Ras Berry
