Compared to the previous birthday reports, the DJ sets for download are (almost) pristine material, without any of the cosmetic changes or jingles or heavy re-mastering that were added during the original broadcast. No tracklisting this time around, sorry.

P.S. The previous birthday recordings are available here, there, and finally here.
