(JP: 'You want an obscure track by Nirvana, this is pretty obscure')
(JP: 'Here's Billy')
(JP: "And he got his first radio play Billy you know, because I was still doing my programme in London one evening and musing, you know, between records and saying I very much care for a Mushroom Biriyani I think it was, and Billy turned up at Broadcasting House with such a Biriyani and a copy of his debut record, so I immediately played a track from it, that's the kind of corrupt bloke I am, I'm afraid no scruples at all")
(Peel mentions liking more of early Mega City Four material, because the tracks were shorter)
(Peel mentions that he had no brushes with royalty this week)
(Peel offers listeners a book of photographs of women by Dave Lee Travis by giving out an address for free copies, in the hope that people will write in for the show)

(Peel carries on with the story of setting up Lonnie Donegan on This Is Your Life when he was pretending to interview him, before Michael Aspel appeared)
