  • (Jim) "I got this in trade back in the day and it's either the master or first gen copy. I traded tapes a lot in those days & if someone wanted something in trade from the UK I would usually just ask them to tape the next John Peel show for me."
  • (Jim) "Session guests include Oil Seed Rape (1st session) and PJ Harvey (3rd session). John also premiers the new Fall single 'Why Are People Grudgeful?' and generally appears to be having a grand old time. It's thanks to this recording I discovered The Nectarine No 9 LP 'A Sea With Three Stars', which is one of my favorite discoveries. Hope you enjoy this recording as much as I do."
  • JP saw Sheffield Wednesday v. Ipswich Town on Wednesday 10 March, but didn't enjoy it (the Tractor Boys lost 1-0).

Listen to the track entitled Matchatcha Wetu, dedicated to Andy and you.' Well, I have listened to it once and it does mention the BBC at one stage, but I may have got that wrong. Listen to it yourself and see what you think.")
