  • After the Captain Beefheart track, Peel comments, "I have to say hello to the Pig, who'll be driving home from Portman Road feeling a little happier, I think. And I apologise to Middlesbrough supporters for this but the light has not yet been extinguished and she'll be a happier girl." Ipswich had beaten Middlesbrough 1-0 at home in the Premier League, ending a run of ten league games without a victory - although they remained in the bottom three.
  • A listener’s email asks if the Venetian Snares track was played at the wrong speed: “Certainly not, it’s a CD. Even I can’t play CDs at the wrong speed. Impertinent blighter.”
  • There is a competition in the programme to win tickets to come to Maida Vale on Wednesday the following week (01 May 2002) to see the Datsuns and the Come-Ons play live sets.
  • Peel decides to pass on giving the title of the Gorerotted track he plays: “Although the words that make up the title are not of themselves particularly offensive, the concept behind it is simply appalling.” [Title below appears to be correct from a streamed 30-second online retail site sample.]
  • Again no Pig's Big 78. The previous night’s failed attempt to play the MD had been intended as the first of a two-part set.
