  • Peel chats to Johnnie Walker at the beginning of the show mentioning how Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown was stupendous when he saw him perform in Texas, America and says that Eric Clapton wouldn't be in the same level as the blues musician in the Royal Albert Hall. He also talks about Sparks, who in the early 70's, would send the BBC royal payment invoices and thought it was really rock and roll, despite the group only having a few airplays in the UK at that time. Peel mentions as well, having flu the whole week and sleeping in the office before the show.
  • Peel plays a session from Prophets Of Da City, who are from South Africa and mentions they've been in the UK to produce their album.

(JP: 'Brasse And Gassielams is how it's written down in front of me, Prophets Of Da City, rapping partly at least I had thought in Afrikaans, itself a political act using your opponent's weapon against him')
(JP: 'That's on a record label from Vancouver, Cave Canem, Beware Of The Dog, those of you who didn't have a classical education') [1]
