Comments
  • (Introduction to show, mood of Peel, interesting comments, etc. If possible, please add mentions of gigs attended, football matches, TV appearances, stories of past/current activities, etc, for use elsewhere on John Peel Wiki.)
  • The Tim Buckley tracks may not be in the same order as on the original playlist. After "Love From Room 170" Peel says "Hope he comes back very soon", which may indicate that it was the final session track, played quite late in the show.
  • Also played was "Canyons Of Your Mind" by Bonzo Dog Band according to John on the following week's Top Gear
