  • After three weeks' absence, Peel returned to Top Gear, once again co-hosting the show with Pete Drummond. It turned out to be Drummond's penultimate appearance as a regular presenter of the show, as from 12 November 1967 Peel and Tommy Vance took over. Ken Garner's The Peel Sessions describes how Bernie Andrews went against the wishes of his Radio 1 bosses and booked Peel for the remaining Top Gear shows of 1967.
  • There is no known recording of the complete show, but many of the session tracks are available on official releases or as lo-fi off-air recordings of the original medium wave broadcast. On most of these, DJ links are missing, but a few survive - as shown below.
  • Around this time, the Perfumed Garden listeners' group were campaigning to persuade Radio 1 controller Robin Scott to give Peel a regular slot on the station, hence the appearance of this message on the small ads page of issue 20 of International Times: "Jackie an Soosan urge PERFUMED PEOPLE to Bombard Robin Scott Now".
