Judging from the program following this recording, The Year In Rock, this is likely around the end of 1997 or the beginning of 1998.

Probably in the Winter because Tim was dressed as a bunny while Matt from Hum wore a chicken suit. Pinfield even put mitts on as the interview was wrapping up. The program taped after this is a Year Best Of for Indie Outing, Janeane Garofalo's show.
