- Peel publicly apologises for his disgraceful behaviour at a Magazine gig, including walking across a table where 12 people were trying to have a meal, and makes penance in rare fashion by playing a request.
- He plays three tracks from Japan's second album "Obscure Alternatives", revealing a very different band from the one that hit the charts with 'Ghosts' some four years later.
- John also reveals Timmy Bannockburn's record of the week, the Village People's 'Y.M.C.A', "which frankly has to be heard to be believed: I'm most amazed that he chose that, but try and hear it yourself if you get the chance." Of course, it climbed to number 1 in January 1979 after being kept off the top by Boney M at Christmas: only in Galactic Symposium's version would it gain airplay on Peel.
