  • Peel plays both sides of the new single from Devo. He introduces the b-side with the words, "what sort of score are you boys looking for when Liverpool visit Maine Road on Saturday?" (the song begins with a count of "1,2 1,2"). The match itself finished Manchester City 1-4 Liverpool.
  • The Roy Brown track was not the one Peel intended to play. He blames incorrect labelling on the record.


Available on The Radio Sessions (CD, Underground, 1995)

JP: "Do you know, I was feeling really crummy until I heard the football results. Now why wasn't I at Portman Road? Well, because I was here actually is the reason for that but - another two goals for Kenny."
(JP - 'Each week we get a copy of the Top 75, but we're only allowed to tell you the top 40. So I can't tell you where Siouxsie And The Banshees come in this week, but I tell you what, if they rise another 9 places, next week, I will be able to tell you where they are'). (link to singles chart)
(JP - 'last time I played this track I got a letter from a collective in Cleethorpes threatening to come down and duff me up if I played it again. Well, I'm playing it again.')
