    It looks increasingly likely that there is a date to be added:
    Magma 1981-09-12 or 1981-09-13 La Courneuve ( ) la fête de l’humanité [a]?
    Hopefully experts will discover more?

    Concerning 1981-03-05 Paris (75) Théâtre l’Est Parisien [r]
    If I understand the gist of the translation. On Zeuhl Music there is confirmation by Memorizator and also a source in the Magazine, Jazz Hot February 1981, n°381 mentioning this event on 1981-03-03. (also another guest: Grapelli was announced)
    Perhaps the concert was on 03 and the radio broadcast 05?
