Comments
  • Second of a week of programmes celebrating 10 years of Peel shows (on/and Radio One), each featuring an hour of choices by one listener. This time, it's the selections of Neville Thorner from Somerset. Show can be dated by reference to Arsenal-Liverpool match (result was 0-0).
  • Before the final hour, Peel promises "three from Randy Newman, three from the Modern Lovers, plus The Stranglers, Gladiators, Tyla Gang and oh so much more." On File 1, only the initial Clash track appears here before it jumps to the second hour.
  • Comments before the T. Rex track that's it's a "particularly poignant" choice that was made before the death of Marc Bolan. Afterwards he remarks that the song was "not entirely representative, but the principle I think is right."
  • Says the Eric Clapton track is a "curious choice" as he doesn't remember playing it on the radio before.
  • File shared with 03 October 1977 and only gives around half an hour of the two-hour show.
