  • Outtakes


    From the start of the video until 2:20, this consisted of the beginning of the 8th June 1981 show. The rest consisted of the other days during June 1981, when Walters hosted the show, while Peel was away.

    John Walters takes over, while Peel is away during the week in the Netherlands doing the Pink Pop Festival.
  • The British Library Sound & Moving Image Catalogue nor Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions book mentions who the session artists were on this show. The British Library mislabels this incomplete programme as a 1980 BBC World Service show, probably due to the presence of a Peel outtake from the BBC World Service mentioning Siouxsie & The Banshees' 1980 album Kaleidoscope on the programme.
  • The sessions if broadcast on this show were certain to have been repeats from Peel's shows.
  • Before the show an excerpt from the news mentions two Americans were rescued near Lands End after their trimaran named Bonifacio was capsized while taking part in the Trans-Atlantic race. This would date the programme as 8th June 1981.
  • The programme starts with the Pickin' The Blues signature, then a Peel outtake from his BBC World Service programme where he mentions that he'll play a track from Siouxsie & The Banshees' Kaleidoscope album, before getting tongue twisted. John Walters then takes over and pretends to be all Smashie and Nicey before introducing the first track from Big Bopper.
