  • Bank Holiday Monday. Peel informs us that he hadn't left the house a great deal over the weekend and had spent a lot of time listening to the radio, "..with every arse bragging about their programmes..", and reads out a list of the artists whose sessions had been broadcast during April, "..and if these bands turned up in your town to play for nothing you'd be pretty pleased about it..".
  • Adam and the Ants' single Stand and Deliver, which opens the show, would be announced as the new UK no.1 two days later.
  • Peel reads out the Independent charts as will feature in the week's Record Mirror/Sounds. He says he receives the charts "..a day or two ahead of the rest of you..and quite rightly so..". Discharge are at no.1 and The Fall are a new entry at no.15 and mentions he will play a track from the Slates EP later.
