A very good sounding FM radio broadcast. There is the occasional FM interference, very small dropouts sometimes causing noticeable glitches between tracks, slight momentarily quality degradations from signal loss, etc, but overall it's a pretty consistent and good sounding radio broadcast. About a second or so during the intro of In Your Room is affected by static noise and a second or two of Never Let Me Down Again is missing due to a dropout, but otherwise this is a complete recording of the broadcast.

Unfortunately, the announcer talks frequently at the beginnings of songs, usually mentioning the song title. There are also occasional radio station watermarks. Only the first three tracks were permitted to be aired as is common with press broadcasts, however, that is not what ensued. I am told that the mixing desk did not switch off the broadcast feed after the first three tracks and the announcer just went with it; he was at the venue and even announced that he was hidden behind the desk with the light turned off. He states several times that the broadcast is illegal and that they were broadcasting without the knowledge of the sound crew. At the beginning of Behind The Wheel, he was discovered and had to end the broadcast - but he sure got a lot more than he expected!
