- Liverpool had beaten Bolton Wanderers 4-1 away this evening. Bolton "must have felt pretty much as General Custer felt when he saw the indians massing for one final attack because really there was nothing they could do but lose. So I hope they lost with dignity." William Ravenscroft's 'Kenny Dalglish is magic!' recording gets anothing airing.
- Peel apologises for the loss of FM signal in the East Anglia region, announcing that there is a transmitter fault in the area that occured at 11:10 pm. He had discovered this when speaking to Sheila Ravenscroft on the phone (he mimics her Bradford accent).
- The scream at the end of the Cure track catches Peel unawares and apparently gives him quite a fright. JP: "It could have been the last you heard of me!"
- Raincoats #1. Repeat of session recorded 6th March 1979 and first broadcast 19 March 1979.
- Frankie Miller #5. Repeat of session recorded ?? 1979 and first broadcast 02 April 1979.
