  • A listener writes in asking about 'There Goes Concorde Again' by the ...And The Native Hipsters. For once, Peel is able to identify the object of the query. "It was immensely popular in whatever year it was that it came out... it's one of those ones [that] I occasionally take it out and think 'shall I put that in the programme?' - but it doesn't sound as wonderful now as it did then. But that's often the case I think. A little philosophy for you there."
  • Another listener emails in to say that 'Pigg' is a Swedish word meaning 'alert and wide awake'.
