  • John once more gives us the questions to the In Session Tonight competition. For those who missed them (cf. 03 September 1993):
  1. Which band recorded a Willie Dixon blues song on a Peel Session earlier this year? (Answer: PJ Harvey, 'Wang Dang Doodle')
  2. Only one of the following four acts has never recorded a Peel Session. Is it: a) Captain Beefheart; b) Leonard Cohen; c) Genesis, or d) the Sex Pistols? (Answer: d)
  • Four tracks are played from the new Nirvana LP.



(JP: 'James Robert in issue 8 of the Independent Catalogue pointed out that that title came from a Fall track: I'm ashamed to say that I hadn't noticed that myself. It comes from this one.')
(JP: 'On one of the monitors here in the 1FM studio, Grace Jones is taking her clothes off. Perhaps I'm getting past it or something, but it looks about as erotic as me taking my clothes off.')
(JP: 'Sounds pretty wonderful to me. There are going to be a lot of people, as I suggested before, who are going to pretend they never really liked Nirvana, but if they do do that, they're going to miss out on an excellent LP.')
(JP: 'It's a sort of really crap thing that DJs do, actually, to finish their programmes with a song called Goodbye.... And now, to take you through the night, Steve Edwards.')
