  • Start of show: "Hello, listener, wherever you are. Welcome to a rain-soaked Peel Acres."
  • Second track of the night is from the movie soundtrack of Five Seconds To Spare, in which Peel himself appears. Unfortunately, after a few seconds: “Now that isn’t supposed to happen. It just stopped.” Happily, it plays OK at the second attempt.
  • Member of session band Quasi is currently cycling around South America. “If he’s lucky he’ll go to Machu Picchu. Never been there. One of those places I would like to go to enormously but probably never will.”
  • Appears to be a first play for a subsequent favourite, Laura Cantrell. “She does look, I have to say, not like my idea of a country singer. Kind of thin lipped and stroppy really, and not like a Playboy bunny.” Says the album is “excellent”.
  • Andy Kershaw later that night has Tom Waits in session: “I’ve never been a great Tom Waits fan, but I shall be listening to it anyway - for Andy rather than for Tom, I suspect.”
  • Elastica track is the only one Peel currently has from the forthcoming album. The band's most recent session is being repeated the following week.
  • Recalls days in Austin, Texas, as member of Dallas Country Cricket Club, which had a game broken up when members of the local university US football team invaded the pitch: “They were much bigger than us. And also, I have to say, a great deal more stupid too. And the same sort of attitudes dictated American foreign policy at the time, which was rather frightening.”
