To Sheila
> Once Upon a Time
> Ava Adore
Crestfallen
Tear
D’arcy: [2 or 3 words in Greek, repeated twice]
Daphne Descends
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
BC: (raspy voice) Thank you.
Perfect (acoustic)
BC: Thank you very much. So as many of you probably know, this is the first time we've ever been to Greece. We were always told by our old managers that if we came to Greece, no one would come to see us play and that...no one would buy our records and uh, no one here speaks English and nobody would care and so.... So obviously, we fired those managers, they're not our managers anymore. And we'd like to thank you, we got news today that our record is number one here in Greece. So thank you very much to those of you who bought the record, those of you who haven't bought the record...we still love you. I guess I should dedicate this song to those of the people who haven't bought the record because those of you who have bought the record, well...what are you gonna do, return it?, ‘cause it’s too late now so.... So we ded - well anyway, we dedicate this song to all of you, thank you very much for coming tonight.

For Martha
(BC at 12:17: Thank you very much, thank you for coming to the concert, goodnight, thank you.)
[encore break]
BC: Thank you, thank you. We wish we had some lights, we can’t really see you, I guess.
1979
BC: Okay...okay. Okay...shh, un momento? Okay. You cannot throw things on stage ‘cause you’re throw - people are throwing rocks. If you hit us with any rocks, we're not gonna play anymore so it's simple. We don't wanna get hit with rocks, we don't want you to throw rocks, we want you to enjoy the concert. Don't throw any more rocks! That's it. Don't make me come out and kick your ass.
Transmission / Let’s Dance / Twilight Zone Theme
(BC at 18:23: Radio, it was a live transmission. Little Johnny had his ear pressed up to the uh...to the transistor radio trying to get Radio Guam. He’d heard a rumor that there was gonna be some good Gamelan music on at uh...twelve hundred hours. Little Johnny wasn’t sure whether he could handle the rock anymore. So he went in search of uh, alternative alternatives. What Little Johnny didn’t realize was there was diodes in his head and...he was able to receive all the radio stations, all the time, anywhere. So Little Johnny twitched his ear and turned into Radio Dali. Yeah, that’s right. (Mike plays Twilight Zone Theme quietly for a moment) Little Johnny was interrupted from his uh...radio listening though, there was a call from Rony Seikaly of the Orlando Magic. Yes, he’s the best Greek basketball player in the NBA. Little Johnny was seeking Rony’s advice and Rony returned his call. [recording cuts])
