Jimi is interviewed at the flat in Upper Berkeley St, by Tom Lopez (aka Meatball Fulton).
Note: there is no actual proof that this interview took place on 9 December. We only know that Meatball Fulton said the interview took place "two weeks after the release of Axis: Bold As Love".

Transmission of the JHE performing “Spanish Castle Magic” on ‘Good Evening!’ (ATV London, between 17.50 and 18.15. Note: the programme was repeated on 11 December 1967 on ATV Midland + Northern (between 23.25 and 23.54) and that’s the last citing of “Spanish Castle Magic” as it appears that the telerecording was wiped shortly afterwards.
