  • Show presented from Pebble Mill Birmingham for One Live. File c) contains whole show for the first time.
  • Start of show: "Hello there chums, tonight's programme comes to you from Bir-ming-ham, and we've got Surgeon, who's going to be playing for us in about 40 minutes' time. We're in the very next studio to where they record the Archers, and this is the actual studio from which Bob Harris Country comes on Radio 2."
  • A listener from Shrewsbury contacts the show asking when a forthcoming session from And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead will be broadcast. This puts Peel in mind of the Shrewsbury Pumping Station 7" (JP: "which is kind of legendary with longterm listeners"). Peel promises to play an extract the following week, which he does on 31 May 2000.


  • Surgeon, live DJ set from Pebble Mill. No known commercial release.

(JP: "When the John Peel Roadshow goes out and about - which it very seldom does these days - the highlight of the set as I see it anyway is when I follow Wilson Pickett's version of 'Midnight Hour' with one by Maloko, which I've featured on this programme on numerous occasions, fantastic sort-of soukous version of the old favourite. When I was looking for something completely different in my record collection over the weekend: this wonderful reggae version of 'Midnight Hour' by the Silvertones.")
