  • Start of show: "Well, let's start the programme tonight with what could easily be, well it's a track from what could easily turn out to be the LP of the year. We've got a session from Elastica, and the Peelenium reaches something like 1969. In fact, it is 1969. But you're gonna love this."
  • A long-time listener asserts that the only time he turned Peel's show off was when he played all four sides of a Yes LP, which JP vigorously denies: "The more pompous they became, the more I disliked them." (This might be a confusion on the listener's part between Peel and the other 'Sounds of the Seventies' programmes - 'Tales from Topographic Oceans' was premiered in full on one of these shows, but probably not one of those presented by Peel.)

  1. John is referring to The Millenium Prayer, which EMI, Richard's record company, refused to release (for reasons which will become apparent after a single listen). Richard released it independently, and it was narrowly beaten to the Christmas number 1 spot by Westlife's 'I Have A Dream.' Despite the fact that it had already been number 1 for two weeks and was the third highest selling single of his career, it was voted worst number 1 of all time by VH1 in 2004.
  2. John claims he and the Pig produced this.
  3. Cover of a song by Trio: "the original I hated, but that one I like."
