Yes, as I was driving to work today, the DJ on KFJC 89.7 FM, Los Altos Hills,
CA, declared that it was time for A Fit of Ecstasy, otherwise known as XTC.
It seems that during each of his shows, he will play at least one XTC song,
in a fit of XTC.  Today's song was "All You Pretty Girls".  So remember to
listen to KFJC, Monday mornings during commute hours, maybe you'll catch this
guy's show.

Just heard the live performance of XTC on WBCN in Boston.  That
was *great*!!  For the record, Andy says that his favorite XTC music
consists of bits of English Settlement, Big Express, and Oranges and Lemons.

About a half of the music they played was from O & L, and half from before
that.  Actually, they only played a portion of "Senses Working Overtime"
and nothing else previous to Mummer.  They played a bit off Mummer, nothing
off of Big Express, a greater amount off of Skylarking, and a handful off
of O & L.  In response to being asked about their US "radio" tour being
a precursor to their performing live again, Andy's response was the they
were just "dipping their toes in the water."  Maybe there's a chance

For those in Boston (assuming this letter gets posted in time, which is
unlikely), a similar session will occur at 6:00pm today (5/15) on WFNX
(101.7 FM).

So now XTC is appearing 'live' at various radio stations. That's great.
Tell me, why don't they do like Oingo Boingo? OB recently released a
double 'live' album, that is, the music was recorded all at once with a
minimum amount of mixing/editing. I think that'd be a GREAT solution for
both the fans and Andy's 'problem'. Oh well, hopefully we'll get a good
tape from their US Radio tour.

    Well, XTC performed a brief acoustic set just a couple of hours
ago, at WBCN in Boston.  The entire thing, including some conversation
between the DJ and the band, and also a few old XTC tracks (maybe 3 or 4),
lasted from 12 to 1.  Songs that were performed :

                      Scarecrow People
                      Senses Working Overtime
                      Love On A Farmboy's Wages
                      King For A Day
                      Mayor Of Simpleton
                      Great Fire
                      Dear God
                      Big Day

     It was not a bad set, and Andy Partridge was his usual lovable self.
