  • This show features two session repeats (in a sense). The Prince Far I commemorates the 10th anniversary of his murder, and the Fall session (played in one block) was originally broadcast on Mark Goodier's Evening Session, but Peel's show asked for and got permission to play it again. Although it is listed in Ken Garner's book The Peel Sessions as part of the band's official canon, it was the only one omitted from the Castle box set in 2005 (however, see below).
  • Three tracks played from the new Nirvana LP, 'In Utero'.

(JP: 'About 2 o'clock, when I staggered off into the night, feeling kind of tired and vaguely depressed, thinking, "Will I get it right next weekend?," on the fax machine there was a fax from Leo which simply said, "Goodnight Mr. Peel." I was much affected by that, and here's a record for you Leo.')
  • Maloko: 'In The Midnight Hour'
(JP: 'That's pressed slightly off centre.I hope that didn't spoil your enjoyment of it.')
(JP: 'Back on the 24th of May, Richard Davies from Shirley in Solihull, West Midlands, wrote to me and he said, "I don't know if you're aware of it or not, but on the 15th of September, it'll be ten years since Prince Far I was murdered in Jamaica. I can remember listening to your show on the night that the news came through, Thursday 22nd, when you played 'No More War,' and then you said there was a session that he'd recorded for you and that you might dig it out and play it again. Well, I've been listening ever since and you haven't done it yet, so perhaps this would be a fitting occasion on which to do it. What do you think?" I think you're right, Richard.')

(JP: 'A much missed man.')
(JP: 'I suppose there are advantages to CDs. I don't like them as objects, as I keep pointing out, but I suspect any bit of music that has ever been recorded anywhere has been made available on CDs somewhere, and it does mean that things I've missed out on the first time around have become available. I should prefer to have them on vinyl, but I can't get them on vinyl. I'm talking particularly about stuff on ESP Records.')
(JP: 'As soon as I wake up in the morning, I'm off to Manchester for three or four days. Right now, it's time for me to hand you over to Steve Edwards.')
