  • A hilarious moment ensues when JP desperately tries to get the CD containing the Cure track, which is only 10 seconds long, to play. Andy Kershaw is in the background, and comments, when only a couple of seconds play initially, 'I think that's all we need to hear of that.'
  • He conducts a phone interview with David Gedge of the Wedding Present in which he chats about gigs David has recently been to, and the new session. Also Peel interviews later on in the programme, Glenn Scullion, drummer of the Bridewell Taxis, whose session is broadcast on this show along with the Wedding Present.
  • Peel replays a snippet of the beginning of Nirvana's Sliver after the song, as he likes the track when the guitar comes crashing down the lyrics and says it is a great record.
  • Peel plays three singles from the Sub Pop label in a row on the show.


  • Bridewell Taxis, one and only session. Recorded 1990-09-18. No known commercial release.

(JP: "There are many pleasures, actually, to be derived from working at Radio One over the weekend, because the building is by and large deserted most of the time. Occasionally, I take all of my clothes off and run naked, screaming obscenities, through the corridors: but more importantly, and more often too, I play records enormously loud. So loud, in fact, that this afternoon, I gave myself earache by listening to this next LP in particular.")
  • Surgery, 'L7 (LP-Nationwide)' (Amphetamine Reptile/Glitterhouse) e
  • Merrill E. Moore, 'House Of Blue Lights (LP-Belly Full Of Blue Thunder)' (Ember)
(JP: "There must be some significance to this "L7" which I don't fully understand. It's probably something saucy, like a lubricant.")

(JP: "I'm not just saying this because David Gedge is listening and he's bigger than me, but I think that's magnificent.")

(JP: 'I'm seriously tempted to say this is the best stuff I've ever heard from the Wedding present, I think that's magnificent!') c
(JP: 'Sounds like the title of an Incredible String Band LP.') e
