- Somewhat overshadowing the show this evening was the sombre news from the South Atlantic concerning the Argentine attack on HMS Sheffield, reflected in Peel's opening words: ""Well I must say that it does seem in the worst possible taste to do a jolly radio programme after news like that, but that's what I must do."
- Peel plays the Paragons track as a tribute to the latest addition to the family, Florence - see 03 May 1982.
- Skat had recorded a session the previous year under the name the Chefs, first broadcast 11 May 1981.
- Two tracks by Duane Eddy among a playlist of mostly new or recent material.
- Blue Poland. Repeat of one and only session, first broadcast 07 April 1982.
- Michael Smith. Debut broadcast of one and only session.
