• John Peel daytime show
  • An edited extract from one of John's Radio London daytime shows on 30 July 1967 between 1708 and 1800. These shows were mainly based on the station's 'Fab 40' daytime output, but the tracklist suggests John was given some flexibility in choosing what to play (especially "climbers" and "revived 45s") within that very commercial format.
  • Some of the music has been edited back to an airchecked version of the programme
  • Extract begins with a short extract from a sponsored speech programme by US evangelist Garner Ted Armstrong[1] ("The World Tomorrow"). The programme was a regular feature of the Radio London schedules, but Armstrong had been broadcasting to Europe since 1953 when his programmes were first heard on Radio Luxembourg. The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band namechecked him in "The Intro And The Outro".
