  • The show comes from Maida Vale, where Lift To Experience play a 45 minute live set.
  • As revealed in the previous night's show, Peel had been telephoned by Captain Beefheart over the weekend. During the course of the conversation, the Captain had mentioned a Sonny Boy Williamson song, which Peel takes as an opportunity to play it.
  • Peel says he had planned to play a Bob Lind track after the Pulp song that namechecks him, but he has run of time at the end of the show.



  • (JP: 'Well hello there, crowd of people and we're down in our Maida Vale studios in front of a select audience of some of the most attractive people in the country. And later on we're going to have a live set from Lift To Experience. Right now, the band that made the programme great.')
  • White Stripes: Fell In Love With A Girl (LP - White Blood Cells) XL
  • (JP: 'I was reading in the Observer magazine last weekend that this programme is again briefly fashionable purely on the strength of playing records by the White Stripes... we were immensely proud, as you can imagine.')

  • Junior Kelly: War Now (7") Maximum Sound
  • (JP: 'For some reason I feel really nervous tonight. Maybe it's because it's my birthday in a few hours time and perhaps it's because I've just been told that Lift To Experience are fantastically loud and even in this kind of little booth in which I operate, the whole place is going to vibrate. So it's going to be pretty thrilling.')
