- Start of show: "Did you hear me on the Annie Nightingale show on Sunday? Terrific. On tonight's programme, we have a session from Jimmy Norton's Explosion. Who are they?

We have a repeat of the first ever Rezillos session, recorded on December 12th 1977, a host of records of course, including records by Trevor Walters (no relation), the Tours, Rudi, Stiff Little Fingers, Capital Letters, Ry Cooder, Cockney Rejects, the Outcasts, 999, Bootsy's Rubber Band and a whole gang of Danes, We start the programme, though, with Madness."
- Following a phone call from Kid Jensen, insincerely bewails the fact that he has never been invited to any of his fellow DJ's homes and none of them has ever accepted his offers to come down to Peel Acres, citing reasons such as having to lance the cat's boil.
- Ry Cooder track prompts thoughts of a Braniff airline hostess called Judy: "I could tell you some stories, but you'd only laugh." (See Margrave Of The Marshes, Peel & Ravenscroft, Bantam Press, 2005, p 156-8.)
