- This was the twelfth program hosted by John Peel during 1983, again featuring David Jensen as co-host. This was the week's singles chart.
- JP: "A lot of concerned young people have written in to ask Top of the Pops 'Whatever became of the Top 10 Video Show?' Well we've brought it back for this week, it's exclusive to The Rhythm Pals and it's coming up pretty soon, right?" DJ:"Alright! Let it roll!"
- Joy Division had re-entered the Top 30 with Love Will Tear Us Apart after the single had been re-released by Factory. Apart from The Cure and Adam Ant who appeared in the show, other session artists in the charts were Madness, UB40, Status Quo, Police and New Order. (Possibly the only week Joy Division and New Order were in the charts at the same time?)
