- Peel follows the "wonderfully inapproprate opening track by Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance" with a sequence of tracks from the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band LP, starting with the similarly-tltled "Good Morning, Good Morning". It includes a few seconds of "A Day In The Life", before he remarks, 'Oh blimey, nearly played a banned record, that's a close one, led to drunkenness, and looting and fornicating in the street, mayhem and Sunday football.' Peel is referring to the BBC's ban on the record on its release in 1967, due to alleged drug references in the lyrics; but at the time he was free to play it on Radio London and did so quite often. 
- He follows the above sequence with a session track from String Driven Thing, covering the Beatles' "Things We Said Today". It was the fifth and final Peel session by the band, who in this late stage of their career (they disbanded soon afterwards) included guitarist Andy Roberts.
- The varied playlist also includes reggae (Jah Woosh, Third World), soul (Janice, Lattimore), country-rock (Poco) and folk (Maddy Prior & June Tabor), as well as a track by Peter Frampton, a best-selling artist in the mid-1970s but not usually thought of as a Peel favourite.
