• 1999-10-26
  • Live sets from Liverpool Sound City in a programme that ran from 8 p.m.-midnight.
  • Peel's show started some 13 minutes late due to the All Seeing I's set over-running (the last few songs are included on this recording).
  • The rather ramshackle broadcasting location is doubtless to blame for a couple of sound dropouts during the Peelenium.
  • After mentioning that Appliance come from Exeter, John recalls (with not a little distaste) that the Principal Edwards Magic Theatre also hailed from there, and the mere mention of their name at Peel Acres provokes 'an emotional crisis.'
