Tracklisting

File begins at start of show
JP: "Well an awfully jolly programme last night, I hope you were listening to it, with Peter Powell and Paul Burnett taking part. And after the programme we went out for a drink and something to eat and we're perhaps going out again tonight in the hope of bumping into some of the England footballers if we stay up late enough." [1].
Peel reads out a traffic bulletin warning of slow traffic due to an accident after J8 of the northbound M1.
JP: "If I was going to be really whacky, I'd say that was a load of cobblers."
  • Systems: Can You Imagine (session)
  • Cravats: Off The Beach (7") Small Wonder SMALL TWENTY-SIX
Festive 50 reminder.
