- Show kicks off in middle of Add N to (X) track; appears first 10 minutes or so missing. NOTE: the show lengths were in fact only 110 minutes so probably very little is actually missing. The first track is only just over 4 minutes long so we seem to have most of it.
- JP on good form whether feigning petulance at not receiving faxes, teasing the producer for rustling papers or forgetting to speak into the microphone.
- Discusses a visit to House of Commons where some MPs ask him what they should be listening to; JP recommends Melt Banana.
- Seems genuinely pleased to recall a recent Peel Acres show with Billy Bragg; sitting around chatting with Billy about music afterward by the fireside. They discussed the Louvin Brothers which he proceeds to play.
- Delightful reference to his daughter Florence continuing to astound him at every turn, most recently by singing Toussaint McCall around the house.
- Does his own Doo Wop bass line to The Fabulaires and it’s rather good.
- Billy Mahonie: #1 First broadcast. Recorded 1999-01-24. No known commercial release.
