  • Peel starts the programme with an emotional tribute to former BBC colleague Teddy Warrick, who passed away the previous night, describing him as a "lovely man" and "like a second dad to me." JP says anyone who enjoys his shows owes a debt of gratitude to Warrick: "For nearly 20 years in the 70s and 80s, Teddy was the man in the Radio One management who fought to keep these programs on the air and we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for his work." First record is dedicated to Warrick and his wife.
  • 1986 Peelenium, after which Peel says he believes Half Man Half Biscuit are even better now, although others may disagree. Then plays 'I Can't Help Myself' by The Four Tops to follow up 'Levi Stubbs' Tears' and says he'd always planned to do this.


  • Pachinos, one and only session. Recorded 1999-10-24. No known commercial release.
