  • Peel is having to use a different studio this evening. It's a Radio 2 studio, which he describes as "fantastically hot". He also points out that "everything is back to front too, so the fader that I would normally use to open the microphone actually launches a missile attack on Washington, so I'd better be careful of that one."
  • Unfamiliarity with the studio setup leads to some mishaps with the faders during the show.
  • One of the CD players also packs up just before the fourth session track is aired.
  • Not being in his normal studio, Peel is disappointed not to get to see Mary Anne Hobbs.
  • He says that Aqua Vista recorded another tune in their session called 'The Hearse', "which we've not played you because I didn't know it existed". He promises to play it when they repeat the session.


No known commercial release.


(JP: 'Do you think Jonathan Ross might use this studio? That's pretty exciting isn't it really?')
  • Appliance: A Gentle Cycle Revolution (single) Mute
(JP: 'There's only one turntable in this studio so this means that my usual brilliant kind of mixes and seques and things like this can't be accomplished, alas. But nevertheless we'll get through I don't doubt.')
