- Start of show: "Well.that should guarantee them a terrific gate. Not going to talk about football a great deal tonight, I don't think (the previous night Liverpool had drawn 0-0 with Nottingham Forest in the 2nd leg of a European Cup tie and gone out 0-2 on aggregate),. On tonight's programme, we have two sessions for you, one from the Solid Senders, and the other one Viv Stanshall returns to Rawlinson End. Among the records, three from George Thorogood and the Destroyers, the second album from them. Also the Hawklords, Bob Dylan, Skids, the Jam, Cimarons, Wire, the Undertones, the usual heads down no nonsense mindless boogie in fact."
- Peel promises to play the Temple City Kazoo Orchestra's rendition of Stayin' Alive, but this is not on the available recording: neither is any of the Viv Stanshall session, which suggests that it was played in one block towards the end of the show.
- Solid Senders, one and only session. Recorded 1978-09-19. No known commercial release. The Peel Sessions lists this under Wilko Johnson in the session index.
- Viv Stanshall, #8 (rpt). Recorded 1978-07-18. No known commercial release.

- (JP: 'I've got a confession to make to you, now actually, because you very nearly didn't get a programme tonight. At about ten minutes to ten, I was busy recording meself singing a song, the lines of which went something like, "We hate Nottingham Forest, we hate Brian Clough too, we hate Peter Taylor, but Liverpool we love you." And I suddenly got this incredible stabbing pain in me head and couldn't carry on, as they say in the music press. So there you are. I think it's witchcraft, it's the only way they could win the game.')
