  • Two tracks from the same Soukous Stars CD in the show.
  • Says of the William Shatner track, "if you haven't heard William Shatner's version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds you're in for something which is really going to change your life. You will not be the same, I warrant, in about 3 minutes and 5 seconds time."
  • Plugs the forthcoming Chain Reaction programme which is to be broadcast early in the following week on Radio 5.
  • Peel tells how he dozed off in his office while listening to the Smokey Hogg CD and woke up during track 16, which was a good enough reason to play it.
