- (Duff Paddy) We pick up the story 3 weeks after the last show, finding Peel in an unusually showbiz mood, with a handover from Alan 'Fluff' Freeman and a bit of banter with his erstwhile Top Gear co-presenter Pete Drummond. Peel also chats about an upcoming holiday to France with his brother Alan and a recent visit to Birmingham, taking in Handsworth market and The Diskery. Sessions tonight come from Roy Harper, Ten Years After and Third Ear Band.
- This one is missing the last 22-25 minutes and once again starts a little slowly. It also gets a little crackly towards the end; maybe it was the end of the reel, hence the truncated recording.
- Peel is impatiently waiting to receive his record collection, which has been shipped over from the USA and has been held in Customs for a month. He dedicates Roy Harper's "Hell's Angels" to the Customs, "with love".
