  • "... so welcome to the Mark Peel programme. In the studio a posse of amusing people who will laugh immoderately at everything I say and, of course, there are inevitably changes in our music policy." JP then plays 20 seconds or so of Simply Red's 'Thrill Me' before interrupting it with a ‘Do me a favour!’ and starting a Fall song.
  • First Saturday evening show following changes to the Radio 1 schedule – which go some way to explain John’s opening comments above.

(Rupa Huq does a Bengali jingle, which translates as "John Peel is fat and old, he isn't that good looking too. And he only likes his own songs. Go Johnny Go.")
  • File 1 begins
("As you may have noticed, nearly everyone on the new, everyday value One FM is called Mark. So welcome to the Mark Peel programme. In the studio a posse of amusing people who will laugh immoderately at everything I say and, of course, there are inevitably changes in our music policy.")
(JP: ‘I’m supposed to discuss football with you, amongst other things, in the course of this programme, but at the moment it’s all rugby players holding babies so we’ll have to wait for a while I think.)
(JP: ‘In case you didn’t listen to the programmes when they were on late at night, and you’ve never heard a woman called Camille Howard be prepared to be astonished. This was recorded in 1949 and when Camille played the piano it stayed played.’)
(JP: ‘Now for our regular “Delicacies From The Captain’s Table” spot.’)
(5:30 News)
(JP: ‘Well you know what staffing levels are like these days. Not easy for anyone and we weren’t able to find any sort of major celebs to review football matches for us but I have got at least one match report for you. Well this is it.’ John then plays a recording of a phone call with his wife Sheila, giving a report on the afternoons match between Ipswich Town and Everton.)
(JP: Martin Offiah we know but this is the previously unidentified Jack O’Fire, seven inch single on Estrus records, another import from America, and a version of Howling Wolf’s Moaning At Midnight.’)
(JP: ‘Johnnie Walker has just walked into the studio next door looking fresh and rather lovely actually.’)
(JP .. ‘this is in fact the very first record that I ever bought. Well it is embarrassing there’s no question about that.’) [1]
