• Best Of Peel Vol 5

(JP: 'My voice is getting deeper and deeper and deeper. If only I could do voiceovers, I could make a fortune, be taken into studios, left there overnight to talk like this, I could be a wealthy man.')
(JP: 'Every time I open the microphone, something starts to go wrong. I start coughing, I can't speak.')
(JP: 'Why do I like this noisy stuff so much? Can't get enough of it, really.')
(JP: 'As you can probably tell, Daddy isn't feeling terrifically well tonight, flu I think it is, but the show must go on, eventually.')
(JP: 'I think it's time that I coughed pathetically to establish the fact that I'm still not terribly well (he does so).') 22 May 1990
(JP: 'And here's a letter from Amanda who writes from Acton in London, and says, "99% of music in your programme is crap". I shall not rest, Amanda, until I can claim 100%.') 23 May 1990
(JP: 'We hippies are back in fashion and no mistake.')
