Two full recordings of the show are available. The first, at over five minutes longer, is clearly running a little slow.
Start of show: "What's wrong with Belgium? People always slag off Belgium. I like Belgium. And what's wrong with beardies, while we're at it?"
Loudon Wainwright plays live on his first visit to the house, some 26 or 27 years after Peel first invited him. As he is preparing to sing a track requested by listeners, John forgets to open his fader and the ensuing silence causes the emergency tape to kick in (over which Loudon can be heard saying, "We're gonna have to do it again, I guess.")
