  • Two almost complete recordings of the show are available. Only the first couple of minutes are missing.
  • An inordinate amount of cover versions grace the show: Six By Seven do David Bowie, Solex covers Echo & The Bunnymen, and Optiganally Yours rework OMD.
  • John gives us a rundown of coming Radio 1 events and gets really quite excited about the Sound City line-up. He also delivers a beautifully sarcastic put-down of Julie Burchill's caustic Guardian article:

"(The QEH concert was) an event which got a good review in the Guardian, and I was quite pleased about that. They failed to point out on this occasion the racist policies that determine the music that goes into these programmes, because they had a perfect opportunity to do so, because Lonnie Donegan is white, and so are the members of Half Man Half Biscuit: well, more a kind of liverish pink, to be perfectly honest, but certainly that is the case, and an opportunity missed there."
