  • Mixtape of Peel's shows from 1977.
  • Beginning of audio has Peel introducing his 24 August 1977 show: "On this rate, they had to make the Gillette Cup final a double header with the cup final I think. Number 18 in the charts at the moment the BBC Charts is The Jam. We got a session from them. We also got a session from Lone Star and among the records, we do some Lurkin, a bit of Motoring. We're going to hear 3 from Magma. We're going to hear the Who, a hint of Elmore James, Ry Cooder, Racing Stars[1], whole bunch of good folk really"
