- John is in particular funny form on this show, whether teasing fellow DJs, poking fun at labels, or pricking the Beeb’s own pomposity bubble.
- He has great fun with a Hole "exclusive" announcement, which refers to him as Mike. Comes complete with a brilliant half-assed fake jingle from the staff.
- It is Sound City the following week from Bristol and JP notes that the promo indicated he will host a program with interviews from fascinating people he has met during the week. He speculates that he will now spend the week wandering the streets of Bristol in search of said fascinating people.
- On the news front, fishing rights in EU seems like a brewing issue centered around Spanish fishing boats with undersized nets – such innocent times.

- Vorhees, #1. Recorded 1995-03-21. No known commercial release.

- JP: "I know in 1995 it's not fashionable to listen to American bands, but sometimes late at night when the rest of the family's in bed I still do."
- JP: "You probably read in the papers about the track Long Finn Killie recorded with Mark E Smith. I've had a cassette of it in the front of my car for three or four weeks now and I'm fed up with not being able to play it on the radio, so from the cassette here it is. I think it's pretty neat of course, but then Mark E Smith reading the telephone directory would go down a storm with me."

- JP: "The Badlands records people make much of the fact that their label is apparently Steve Lamacq's favourite label, so this comes with the endorsement of the Evening Session."
