- (JP: 'You may have heard or read about the changes that are coming to Radios 1 and 2, and maybe you even wonder if it affects this programme in any way: well, it does. We'll be giving Friday nights the elbow in fact, so it'll just be four nights a week. On Friday there's going to be a kind of vaguely Alan Freeman-styled music programme at this time, so it means at least I'll be able to get out and see a few more bands, which will be very nice, because I don't see a lot of the bands that we feature on the programme, which is rather irritating.')

- (JP: 'And I also heard, to my considerable pleasure, that one of the less unscrupulous record companies is very interested in the Undertones, and I hope they do something for them. A band from Derry, that's from their debut EP....and a really excellent record it is too.')
