Behold this archive clip of Pete Tong reading out the Essential Mix web address in 1995

By , Jun 18 2015

For any listeners “out there on the internet”.

The Radio 1 Essential Mix made an appearance on BBC World News last week when, for no particular reason, they played an archive clip dating back exactly 20 years.

The clip, taken from Eric Powell’s Essential Mix on June 11, 1995, finds Pete Tong grappling with the show’s not-exactly-concise web address – hope you’ve got a pen at the ready. Depending on your age it’ll either make you misty-eyed for the pre-Googlian epoch or simply make no sense. [via Mixmag]
