  • Peel says in 3 or 4 weeks time, he'll be taking time off, with Muriel Gray presenting his shows, whilst he is away driving from his home to Helsinki in Finland, hoping to see Melrose play live and meet the fellow who sang Sealed With A Fish. [1] Peel goes on to say that he'll be travelling through Bremen, Germany to meet people there. Peel with his family did indeed drive from Peel Acres to Scandinavia during April 1987, but only made it to Sweden, because of running out of money. He didn't manage to go to Finland until 2001.    
  • Peel reviews the Blah, Blah, Blah fanzine, which has a 7" flexi-disc from I, Ludicrous. He goes on to explain the fanzine reviews Millwall, Billy Bragg's audience, The Fall, The Stranglers and a football match between Norwich City and Millwall.    
  • Peel mentions receiving a cheque not made out to him from Punch magazine after writing a 'rather unfunny piece on Paul McCartney, which I hope you missed' at the end of last year.    
  • Peel reads a letter from a member of It Dockumer Lokaeltsje from the Netherlands, who talk about the band who sing in Frisian, which is considered to be the closest to the English language.
