  • JP answered a listener's question: 'Do I remember the European cup finale in 1966, when Liverpool was beaten by Borussia Dortmund 2-1? And that's the team he supports. And he asks: Is there still a cloud over Liverpool? Actually, there isn't in the moment, because they are 3rd in the football league and they got a game in hand and they're looking very strong...'

  • JP 'Here is a satisfied customer, Jeremy Dodd, who writes from Hamburg: "Dear Rock Today, please tell John Peel, I hate his programme and an extension to 2hrs. were worse than a communist government." Ha, political overtones" - "The reason, I occasionally listen in, is because of the names of the awful groups he features are funny. Could you therefore ask John Peel, TELL John Peel, to read out the groups in the beginning, so I can switch off. Yours faithfully, Jeremy Dodd PS: Otherwise play THE EAGLES or GENESIS or something musical."- Tell ya what, Jeremy: Get stuffed. Another listener (a Chris from King's School) wrote, amongst other things: "If you can play records for the Germans, who shouldn't listen to your programme, you surely can play something by KISS. Or is it too much to ask?"

- "I'm afraid, it is, Chris".
