- Plays several tracks from new LPs "Can't Stand The Rezillos" and "Handsworth Revolution" by Steel Pulse, plus both sides of the latest Desperate Bicycles single.
- Playlist for the night includes "three of the shortest recordings known to man." After playing two of these, Peel throws in an 8-minute Van Der Graaf Generator epic.
- Gimmick song alert: The Snakefinger ode to a pimple (co-written by The Residents) is followed by a version of an old Leiber & Stroller hit by mezzo-soprano Joan Morris & pianist William Bolcom.
- The La Pest record was discovered after Peel's death among his favorite 45s in John Peel's Record Box.
- The Albion Band track is Simon Bates’ forthcoming single of the week. (Tape fades badly during this one, but soon picks up again)
