  • Not a conventional opening to the show: in lieu of the usual Grinderswitch sig, we get a snatch of Robb Wilton segued into the first track, which John dubs "the exclusive Mixmaster J. Peel/Robb Wilton mix."
  • John mentions seeing McCarthy in Portlands (near Broadcasting House) the previous Thursday (22nd), "and very good they were too. I recommend them to you."
  • JP regales us with a tale of his attending an award ceremony where he presented a platinum disc to Premi.

  • Bogshed: 'Duck Fight / US Bands / Wally Wallah' (Peel Session)
(JP: 'This is for the Pig, whose birthday it is in something like four minutes' time.')
