  • JP: "The Pig always really rather dreads our winning the pools, which is unlikely to happen. We've budgeted for it already, of course. But she knows perfectly well that if we did win I should spend most of the money on recording bands. I mean, I'd really like to have a record by 3D, I must say."
  • Peel mentions a new band from Manchester called James, whose record he promises to play in tomorrow night's show.
  • The Popticians were the vehicle for Luton's finest, John Hegley.
