Programme is broadcast from London rather than Peel Acres, as Peel is appearing at Fabric the following evening.
First play on the programme for Amsterdam's "Does This Train Stop On Merseyside?", taken from a promotional compilation CD put together by the Picket club in Liverpool. Peel's opinion: "I hope nobody will be offended - they ought to be rather flattered, actually - if I say that for older listeners anyway, this sounds amazingly like something that Pete Wylie might have done."
Peel takes issue with the press release that comes with the Corrigan single, saying how he finds it off-putting when attempts are made to describe a band's music with nonsense along the lines of, "Imagine Lou Reed fist-fighting with PJ Harvey with Coldplay watching. You think, 'what does that mean?' I can't imagine that. My imagination doesn't take me that far. With Nick Cave standing in another room... watching television. You think, 'get off!'"
Plaid #3. Recorded 2003-10-01. No known commercial release.
JP: "I recognised the voice of Liberace in there, I think. A great hero. Used to have a programme you know on Radio Luxembourg, it was probably called something like, 'The Liberace Half-Hour' or 'quarter of an hour' or something. Listening to it was like... wading through treacle. It was an extraordinary experience but I used to make a point of listening to it every week nevertheless."
