  • Start of show: "Well, I don’t know what that last record that Steve played was, but it sounded good. As does this..." [1]
  • Peel looks to abuse his position by canvassing emails on the subject of pick-up trucks, as he is thinking of getting one. Sheila has told him he can't have one, but he thinks she won’t be listening.
  • JP: "A bizarre and in some ways terrible weekend for football obviously as far as we were concerned in our house" - Ipswich had lost 5-0 against Liverpool (BBC report) and were relegated from the Premiership. Peel expresses hopes of a two-pronged East Anglian promotion push the following season by Ipswich and Norwich.
  • Plays a track from the Siouxsie & The Banshees debut album after learning they are going on tour; says he hadn’t realized they were still going in any meaningful way. "The late John Walters and myself were mad for Siouxsie & The Banshees, and Mary Anne Hobbs reckons she can remember me playing an entire Siouxsie & The Banshees LP through from start to finish on one occasion, and I’ve got a feeling she may be right, but whether it was this one or another one I honestly don’t remember ... history will record it somewhere, but I don’t know where." (It was probably the band's debut album, The Scream, on 03 October 1978.)


  • Hint #1 First broadcast of only session. Recorded 2002-03-31. No known commercial release.
