(Introduction to show, mood of Peel, interesting comments, etc. If possible, please add mentions of gigs attended, football matches, TV appearances, stories of past/current activities, etc, for use elsewhere on John Peel Wiki.)
Ken's Book states that there was no show tonight as a result of the NME live shows. Lorcan's Ceefax listing says there was no show due to an extended evening session at the Astoria. However the BBC genome site states that there was a John Peel show due to be on tonight.
So far, so confusing. However it is clear from these edited cuts from the Lee Tapes that Steve Lamacq is actually filling in for John, possibly with a shortened version of the show, or else just sprinking John's choices throughout the show. He has left him some notes on sleeves and some records to play and had also said to make sure and play a track by Fridge.
