- The three sessions are by bands each featuring a former member of The Damned: Whitecats (Rat Scabies), Tanz Der Youth (Brian James), King (Captain Sensible). JP describes the first set of session songs as an “ex-Damned make fairly good sequence”. There had been a similar idea on the 09 August 1978 show, where the Tanz Der Youth and King sessions had both featured. The Damned themselves would soon reform and be back on the show with further classic sessions.
- Pre-recorded show. Mentions he will actually be “jumping about drunkenly" to The Jam at Reading at the time of the broadcast.

- 1) Originally shared through assorted torrents/uploads, brought together on a now-defunct Julian Tapes (torrent) by "bbrbr57", also via Peel Newsgroup. Some of the original cassettes were running fast and the speed of the digital files may need adjustment. This is possible using Audacity and similar software. Unfortunately the quality of this recording is very poor.
- Many thanks to Julian, Kev and "bbrbr57"!
- Possible the current mp3 version has been speed adjusted, although it still clocks in at just over two hours.
- 2) This file contains two half-hour sections of the 400 Box, digitised by Weatherman22. The first half hour runs from half way through the first King track to half way through the second Tanz Der Youth track. The second half hour then runs from half way through the Smiley Lewis track and runs to the end of the programme.
