- The John Peel Roadshow had made a disappointing trip to Stafford the previous Friday evening, 15th December. "The magic of the Peel name had not only ensured that virtually nobody turned up but it seemed to have emptied the whole of the city centre as well."
- Peel had driven straight home afterwards and called in at the famous Blue Boar cafe at Watford Gap services on the M1 for something to eat. The quality of the chips was an added disappointment.
- Only the first few minutes are now missing from the show.
(Please add details of any commercial release of these sessions)
