  • In this instalment of Kat's Karavan, JP mentions a recent encounter with Jeff Mills in Barcelona; states that due to popular demand last night's Belle & Sebastian session will be repeated next month (10 July 2001); says he likes the sound of Oxford's forthcoming Truck Festival ; chastises a listener for their bad grammar; explains how difficult it is to time the duration of records while driving at 80mph; reminds listeners of the forthcoming Strokes session (27 June 2001); tells a curious listener that there has been recent label interest in local lad Cowcube; conducts a competition to win a book by Arthur Mathews (most of the copies bought by JP himself as a present to the listener); reads out a dedication for the birth of someone's second child; searches for a record by someone from Texas; gets an email from Paul from Six by Seven; answers a listener's query as to why contractual restrictions lead to the destruction of early Peel session tapes; and plays the Commercial Breakup track at the wrong speed (eat a sweet).
