  • Tracklisting below is from Volume 2(ii) of the Decktician Logs. Many thanks to Decktician, Ken Garner for copying and additional information, and Rocker for acting as central HQ.
  • Some differences between Decktician's log and the PasB script. The script starts with 'Dancing Jack Peel' by Lindisfarne, presumably from the 1971-01-17 session originally scheduled for 04 February 1972 and eventually broadcast 10 March 1972. Decktician has no record of the Lindisfarne track (it is unclear if it was ever broadcast) and starts with 'Friday Night is Boogie Night' by 'Detroit', which appears to be a combination of the show jingle by Bill Aitken (possibly a first airing) and 'Let It Rock' by Detroit, which is the first track on the PasB.
  • Decktician lists the Asylum Choir track as 'Down On The Base'.
  • The PasB ends with the Olly Oakley track (listed as "sig tune"), which isn't mentioned by Decktician. The tune, which includes 'D'Ye Ken John Peel', was played as a Pig's Big 78 on 04 March 2004 and subsequently appeared on The Pig's Big 78s: A Beginner's Guide compilation.
  • Played early in the show, 'Mordicai Jones' is actually Link Wray: the pseudonym referred to his piano/mandolin player Bobby Howard.
  • Three versions in a row of "That's How Strong My Love Is", a single by Leon Haywood and the Roy Young Band session all show how soul was beginning to play a larger role in Peel's playlists.
  • Folk is repesented by a Bridget St John single, one of Bob Dylan's best-known early songs and a track by the Johnstons, regarded by some folk fans as a bit middle-of-the-road, although Peel liked some of their material and singer Paul Brady would later do sessions for him.
