- Gets Kid Jensen to read out the details of the French band as he has "quadruple nationality" but he gets it wrong and introduces del Amitri instead.
- Peel & Jensen find some ruined partially signed pictures of Peter Powell in the studio bin, so decide to hold a competition to win them - the question is "how many weeks holiday has Peter Powell had so far this year?"
- Jensen points out that Peter Powell is growing a beard and looks a bit like one of the Village People. Peel then draws a beard on the photos.
- John seems very taken with the del Amitri session - probably the only time anyone has ever said "why aren't there more del Amitri records?"
- Peel mentions that the stuff he gets sent from Recommended Records smell much nicer than anyone else's releases.
- del Amitri #1. First broadcast of session recorded 1984-03-31.
- Billy Bragg #2. Repeat of session recorded 1984-02-21 and first broadcast 27 February 1985.
