  • Peel sets a competition for listeners to win 7" singles by the Action Swingers, Thing, Unholy Swill, Bench, Drunks With Guns and Abu Nidal. The question is who is the man that owns Noiseville records?
  • Peel plays a track from the Pixies covering Neil Young's I've Been Waiting For You.
  • Peel plays a track from Crane covering Blondie's Hanging On The Telephone, which they re-titled as Hanging.
  • Peel mentions his son William having a day off from school, as he's not well. This gave a chance for Peel to see him in his bedroom, where he describes it as a black hole, where anything worthwhile, disappears in it. He then dedicates a record to William by playing a track called I Didn't Do My Homework by 2 Deep.


  • Tad #2, recorded 19th June 1990-06-19. No known commercial release.

(Friday Rock Show trailer by Tommy Vance)
(JP: 'Looking into the next studio where Nicky Campbell is being filmed reminds me of why it is that I kind of opted out of television. Not that there were millions of people beating a path to my door, saying, "Hey, we really want you to be on...", whatever their programme was, you know, but at the same time it's very time-consuming. He's surrounded now by clean-cut and personable young men in dark blue suits, who every once in a while switch on enormously bright lights that make me jump.')
(JP: 'Tad Doyle left me a record by a band called Treepeople and said something like, hey how about playing this on the radio, and if he says that, well I'm going to play it on the radio')
