  • Peel had been out the previous evening in London to see Bim Sherman, Prince Far I and Prince Hammer - "thoroughly enjoyed myself. Very, very good evening it was." He'd also had a chat afterwards with the Members.
  • Peel has begun to receive mail addressed to "Johnny Plee". He attributes this to Kid Jerkin who has taken to calling him "music-loving Johnny Plee". JP: "It seems to be catching on, I've had about five or six letters in the past couple of days addressed to Johnny Plee. Not entirely sure that I'm happy with it, sounds like some ghastly kind of Belgian disco DJ."
  • John enthuses about the new session (their third) that Siouxsie & The Banshees recorded for the programme on April 9th. "I heard the tapes yesterday and they really are incredibly good... a devastatingly good session." It is to be broadcast the following Monday, 16 April 1979.
  • The Ruts single is "still the best single of the year so far."
  • Announced at the start of the programme but not captured on the available recording are records by the Skids and the Nina Hagen Band.
