  • Start of show: “Bit slow on the trigger tonight – sorry about that. This is about to be an all-record programme, roughly 31 records, with 30 of them being singles, mainly new ones. The record which isn’t a single is the first in the programme. It’s the track that I promised you last night if you were listening then. It’s Conway Twitty’s version of ‘Whole Lot Of Shakin’ Going’ On’. An oldie of course, mainly notable for a classic guitar break. This is Conway Twitty.”
  • Phone call from Siouxsie before the show to say the Banshees/Spizzoil gig in Liverpool the following evening has been cancelled.
  • The Johnny Rondo Trio featured former Dandelion recording artist Lol Coxhill.
  • Peel mentions a Skids gig the previous evening at the Marquee, which it sounds like he attended (Peel says they name-checked Subway Sect). This was the gig where the version of “TV Stars” that appeared on the b-side of ‘Into The Valley’ was recorded.[1]. Peel had previously mentioned (on 31 October 1978) that he would be seeing Graham Parker at the Venue the following evening, so either his plans changed or he went to both gigs (his show of 01 November 1978 was presumably pre-recorded).
  • Lee Perry single was in John Peel's Record Box.
  • Blames Walters for following The Nips with Half Japanese.

  • Subsequently the whole show has become available.
