Hitline USA is a syndicated call-in talk show aired every Sunday night. On the day after the famous 18 June Rose Bowl concert, Martin Gore and Andrew Fletcher went down the Hitline studio and answered questions from fans calling in. Support acts Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and Thomas Dolby did the same (but recordings are not included in this upload).
