Some are clips from interviews discussed and expanded upon by the DJs, some are straight interviews
Source: mostly nicmac, two from Noggin. Whichever source, these were hissfests, so I took the nuclear option and blitzed with Goldwave as they’re interviews, rather than concert recordings.

There’s a lot of Japanese in there though.
The nicmac tracks have cleared up reasonably well (8½/10) the Noggin tracks are still pretty rumbly (7½). There was room on the disc, so the final track is from UK TV, but pretty difficult to find.
Running fast, speed corrected @ 104%
Running fast, speed correction with a factor of 94%.
Tape flip during the Boston 83 section @ 11:22 – probably a teeny bit missing – simply joined.
New York 83 had a virtually non-existent right channel. Left channel copied with 0.002 second offset.
All given a final clean with Goldwave Noise Reduction tool on Hiss Removal default setting.
Sector boundary errors tidied with TLH.
