Comments
  • Start of show: "Hello again, this is another John Peel's Music On BFBS. I'm a slut."
  • John regales us with stories about Sheila's 50th birthday party at Peel Acres, including asking the DJs there to play 'Fireworks' by DJ Force And Styles (although he can't remember if they did). The DJs had put the 12 inch back in the wrong sleeve, so Peel accidentally plays a DJ Kaos track instead. (However, he manages to find "Fireworks" and plays it later.)
  • He mentions doing a voiceover for a documentary about how the wreck of the Titanic was exploited, due for transmission in early 1999.
  • JP is fed with a reheated Indian takeaway whilst on air, and opines they taste better that way. He later allows himself a glass of red wine, too.
  • He remembers seeing Clyde McPhatter at the Liverpool Empire with Duane Eddy and Bobby Darin around that era, "and amazingly good he was too."

Sessions

Tracklisting

(JP: 'Have you noticed how these days all punk rock singers sound like Cartman out of South Park? Well, at least they do to me.')
(JP: 'Still never been to Finland, you know. I really must make the effort to go before the Millennium.') [1]
(JP: 'I hope you'll join me next week. I know I say that every single week, but it is kind of heartfelt, even if it sounds grotesquely insincere....Until next week, my beauties.')
