- Second of four shows featuring the legendary 1977 Festive Fifty (actually Festive 61, with tracks chosen by Peel rather than listeners).
- Information on the show courtesy of Ken Garner, who first published details of the 1977 Festive Fifty in The Peel Sessions. Many thanks, Ken!
- The available recording features only the Traffic concert, broadcast in the first hour of the show.
- None: Traffic concert, recorded 1970-04-30. First broadcast 10 May 1970. Appears to be available online at Wolfgang's Vault, except 'No Time To Live'. However, that track is included on this recording.
- (JP (in 1977): '....but first let me hand you over to this much-loved historic figure.')
- (JP (in 1970): 'There's always stories of groups breaking up in music papers, and it's really nice to have one of the great ones get together again, and it's even nicer to have them on this programme. Traffic!')
