  • Peel has a copy of the new Mudhoney LP but hasn't heard it yet. JP: "Over the weekend I made myself extremely tired by carrying boxes of records from one end of our house to the other - something like fourteen crates of unheard records. I think the Mudhoney LP must be in there somewhere."
  • John and Sheila had been at Portman Road on Sunday to see Ipswich Town play Leicester. They had to leave when the score was 2-1 because Sheila had a singing engagement. "By the time we got to our car, it was 5-1. How irritating is that?" The match ended in a 6-1 victory for Ipswich (BBC match report).
  • Peel says that he is running low on records for the Pig's Big 78. He mentions in passing that he "stole the idea" of the feature from former colleague Keith Skues. He hopes to replenish his stock at a forthcoming 1950s themed event in October called the 'Jukebox Madness Show'. JP: "How's this for being a good daddy? I sold my jukebox, which I loved, in order to buy our Alexandra a pony."


  • Fixit Kid. Only session, recorded 14 July 2002.


JP: "What an exciting start to the programme, let me tell you, because we had to do a hot seat changeover with Steve Lamacq. It says a lot about the individual DJs about the temperature of the seat when you take it over. Now Lammo is a thin man and so the seat is kind of cool. But he said that when he took it over from Dave Pearce he was pretty warm and Dave Pearce was saying when he took the seat over it was just scorching. So I fear for Mary Anne Hobbs at midnight, I must say."
After a big build up, Peel starts playing the wrong Chuck Willis track (Wrong Track Moment).
