    The record cover of Songs Of Praise by Poison Girls

    Peel admires the work of Clifford Harper who designed the Poison Girls' Songs Of Praise LP cover. 
  • Peel plays a track from the Coward Brothers, a group that featured Elvis Costello and another man who Peel forgotten the name. The other man turns out to be T-Bone Burnett.
  • Peel thinks the Hammerheads song by Shriekback mentions the lyrics of 'John Peel running through the fields'. The lyrics are in fact 'Jumping, running through the fields', which Peel finally admitted after the Fuzztones' Bad News session track.
  • Peel mentions that he is happy that it rained, because it cancelled a Wimbledon tennis match.
  • Peel mentions the first 10" LP he got when he was 15 was Bill Haley And His Comets' Live It Up! LP and his favourite track on the LP was Real Rock Drive, which he tries to play from a compilation album and finds out that it is the wrong track.

(JP: 'The best record still of the year so far, I know this is very posey cause it is a Cretan record, but still my favourite record of 1985')
