    Haircuts of the Nocturnus band from the The Key album

    Peel mentions going to see a football match between Liverpool and Norwich City after not being at a league match for a long time.
  • Peel mentions John Denver is suing New Order over the Run 2 track, which he claimed the guitar riff of the song was copied from his Leaving On A Jet Plane track. Peel proceeds to play the New Order track to support the band.
  • Peel mentions he is happy that Donovan would be touring with the Happy Mondays.
  • Peel says the band Nocturnus' haircuts from their album, The Key, look like they maybe members of the Austrian World Cup football team.
  • Peel mentions getting letters from people asking how to get a job in the record industry and tells them that he doesn't know people in that sector.



(JP: 'I suppose if you go out and buy a fresh copy of that, it could help and send John Denver into outer space and in fact I think I should be sending New Order a considerable list of people songs to copy in future, uhm, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, get them all in outer space.')
(JP: 'I was looking through Sounds and they have something called The Awesome Ten Most Requested Songs, sorry, can't read my own handwriting, The Most Requested Songs At Club Awesome, The Venue, New Cross, London. Number 1 this week is Robinson Crusoe - Cud, New Fast Automatic Daffodils 2, Teenage Kicks 3, Ballad Of John And Yoko - Teenage Fanclub 4, Saint Etienne - Kiss And Make Up 5, Taste by Ride 6, Not Listening 7, that's Snuff of course, T.F.A. by Silverfish 8 and this is at number 9')
(JP: 'Not perhaps the most profound version of the old favourite from yester year, but worth playing to you I think')
