  • Show is broadcast from Peel Acres.
  • Peel listened to some demos on his drive home from London earlier that day ("this is not always an enjoyable task", he admits). However, a demo from Sheffield band Ormondroyd impressed him. He manages to play a different track to the one planned (the intended track would get an airing on 21 January 2003).
  • A listener from Sweden emails in to say that they have started listening to the show again thanks to the internet. They say they used to listen to the show twenty years ago via medium wave radio, so requests something from "way back then". Peel asks for suggestions for something to play from 1983. The Red Guitars track is the later choice.
  • Peel had been record shopping that afternoon for "Norwegian Black Metal" for an unspecified Radio 4 programme. The Teen Cthulhu record was purchased on the trip.
  • The Pig's Big 78 track is by George Formby Sr, not - as Peel was expecting - his more famous son. This accounts for it not being as amusing as he hoped.
  • Another version of 'On A Steamer Coming Over' gets played. "We can't make up our minds whether we like that one better than the Three Ginx. I think I'll probably go with the Three Ginx if I had to make some kind of serious decision about it."



JP: "From Stowmarket, those are the Vaults. I couldn't be more proud of them if they were my own children, which blood tests have shown they are not."

  • Many thanks to B!
  1. Peel mentions that this is DJ Loxy and Austria's D Kay (perhaps among others) collaborating as Danger Massive on this drum & bass track, but the internet draws a blank.
