- John is so excited by the Fall session being broadcast next Saturday 13 March 1993, that (unusually) he’s already listened to it. He describes the tracks as ‘all quite wonderful’.
- The Phantom Fifty reaches number 34.
- He attended the Ipswich Town v. Middlesborough match at Portman Road on Tuesday 02 March, which he described as the worst match he had seen since Huddersfield v. Crystal Palace ten or twelve years previously. (The Tractor Boys lost 1-0.)
- John is frustrated that he cannot play any tracks from the new PJ Harvey LP and that he was not able to either see them or organise a session with Hail when they were in the country. The band subsequently went on an extended hiatus, so it never happened.
- Pulp, #2. Recorded 1993-02-07. Available on Pulp - The Peel Sessions (Universal).
- Polvo, #1 (rpt). Recorded 1992-10-06. No known commercial release.

- (JP: 'I wish they’d invite me back on Desert Island Discs. I’d have both versions of that [Kimble] on there I think. That was the Fall of course on Strange Fruit. Possibly the best record ever made in the whole history of the world.')

- (JP: 'I don’t normally do this but on this occasion I cheated and listened to the Fall session prior to its being broadcast – it's very undisciplined of me to do that but I was so excited that I couldn’t resist the temptation- the tracks and they are all quite wonderful– Ladybird, Strychnine (which is a cover version although I can’t remember who did the original but I’ll have discovered that by next weekend), Servile , and then a classic Fall title anyway, Paranoia Man In Cheap Shot Room. So four tracks for the Fall that will be broadcast next Saturday night. The sixteenth for the programme, so Ken Garner tells me, and the 20th for Radio 1 – Whoopee!')
