  • Peel plays a track from Idle Race, because an interviewer from Record Collector came to Peel Acres to ask questions, some of them related to Marc Bolan, which JP mentions that Jeff Lynne from Idle Race gave some guitar lessons to Bolan. He also goes onto mention that inside the record sleeve of Idle Race's Happy Birthday LP, there is a picture of a birthday party, which has him sitting next to BBC Radio One DJ's.
  • Peel plays a couple of tracks from Public Enemy's latest album.



(JP: 'And as you may have read, may know, Arizona is one of the handful of states which doesn't celebrate Martin Luther King Day, this is what Public Enemy think about that')
(JP: 'Shaping up as for another contender LP of the year, that's Nirvana from the LP, Nevermind, it's 11:30 and Brian Deacon has the news')
(11:30pm news)
(JP: 'I think only somebody that was completely demented would try to persuade you that that was Sonic Youth's most important work ever')
(JP: 'That session from Babes In Toyland coming up in a moment and I shall broadcast all four tracks, hopefully without any interruption, unless something goes catastrophically wrong, but I shall introduce it first of all by playing you a track from the oldest Babes In Toyland LP that I've got. You may not have heard this before')
(JP: 'Get thee behind me, Stryper,' I think is certainly amongst the top five song lines of the year, to say the very least.')

(Peel plays a hidden backward message on the Half Man Half Biscuit Christian Rock Concert track, to show sarcastically that there are no satanic influences, when playing backward rock records. The record backwards appears to be about Alvin Stardust) 2 c1
