The Radio One Sessions (1996) is a CD by the Damned consisting of all their BBC sessions for Janice Long, Mike Read and Saturday Live with Richard Skinner - in other words all their Radio One sessions except the ones recorded for John Peel. In addition, there are two tracks which were recorded for Peel, the tracks "Liar" and "Hit Or Miss".

Their complete BBC Peel Sessions (apart from "Liar" and "Hit Or Miss") are on the disc Sessions of the Damned. (The complete Peel tracks would not fit onto an 80-minute CD so the two mentioned above were placed on the Radio One Sessions CD instead.)

<i>Swing the Heartache: The BBC Sessions</i> 1989 compilation album by Bauhaus

Swing the Heartache: The BBC Sessions is a compilation album by the English gothic rock band Bauhaus, released in 1989 by Beggars Banquet Records. "These sessions were recorded at the BBC studios in Maida Vale, London, for broadcast on Britain's national radio station, Radio One. The BBC do not impose editorial control on the material recorded, so while some artists use the opportunity to promote a version of their latest single, Bauhaus opted to explore 'off-the-record' ideas; experimenting with tracks that would later be re-recorded for record release, recording cover versions of songs they'd played during sound checks before live shows, or just trying something to see what happened. Each session was recorded and mixed in one day, and in most cases the group performed live in the studio with minimal overdubs, giving the tracks an additional edge. Five of these recordings were used on official record releases; Bauhaus felt the session version of 'Double Dare' was stronger than a later studio take and included it on their debut album; 'Departure' and 'Party of the First Part' were used as 'b' sides on 12" singles; 'Ziggy Stardust' and 'Third Uncle' were coupled on a single and became the group's biggest hit. Two other songs have never officially appeared on record before now; 'Poison Pen' was re-recorded but was not used and 'Night Time' is a cover of the Strangeloves' USA garage classic. Though these tracks were never recorded with a record release in mind, the complete BBC sessions are presented here legally for the first time, digitally re-mastered from the original tapes. They are a fascinating insight into the Bauhaus legacy."
