      My collection is in transit and should arrive in a few weeks. It's really disappointing to hear that even the BBC themselves can't get this right :( We like to support them by purchasing these releases, but I think it's a very poor show that they make so many mistakes. Thanks for the details.

I've been listening to the rips I made of MY classic JAM collection (and what it is too!) to make sure they ripped properly, and noticed one episode had some stuttering for a few seconds. I went back to the CD that was indicated in the liner notes, and found they had listed the wrong episode.
