- John Peel's Music On BFBS
- BFBS (Germany)
- "These programmes are all about alienation."
- Tape inlay reads 'Week 40 / '86.'
- A listener request for various tracks meets with inevitable disdain from John: the Stranglers' Nice In Nice is a "bit of a bore" and the Psychedelic Furs' Pretty In Pink, "a stadium version of a song which I never very much cared for in the first place."
- (JP: 'And you're listening to the big one: BFBS, the tower of power. This is John Peel's Music, rather noisy again this week, I'm afraid.')
- Dag Nasty: 'Thin Line (LP-Can I Say)' (Dischord)
- Half Man Half Biscuit: 'Dickie Davies Eyes (12")' (Probe Plus)
- Pigbros: 'Cheap Life (12")' (Backs)
- (JP: 'From Andy, in which he says, "Please stop playing awful records by Princess Stephanie of Monaco." I'm a great fan: if she made an LP, you'd hear every track from it on these programmes. Excellent stuff. What an artiste: I keep hoping that she'll come to Britain and record a session for the programmes that I do for the BBC, one of my boyhood ambitions.') 
- Triffids: 'Everybody Has To Eat (LP-Raining Pleasure)' (Hot)
- Fall: 'Terry Waite Sez (LP-Bend Sinister)' (Beggars Banquet)
- Durutti Column: 'The Aftermath (Compilation LP-Abuse - Artists For Animals)' (Slip)
- Shop Assistants: 'I Don't Wanna Be Friends With You (7")' (Blue Guitar)
- Josef K: 'Crazy To Exist (7")' (Postcard)
- (JP: 'Pretty big on the dancefloor I'm told at the moment, not that I often find myself on the dancefloor, and then only walking across on my way to the bar.')
- (JP: 'In case you're expecting to hear some of my brand new records in this programme and wondering why they're not there, I have to confess that they're pre-recorded slightly in advance, even more so than usual, so that I can go to Japan and Hong Kong for three weeks, which I'm looking forward to although I'm terrified of flying. I'll have to be rendered unconscious before I set off and before I come back. When I do get back, I hope to have lots of Japanese hardcore records to play you, but by all accounts, although they're extremely hard to get hold of in the West, I shall have the only ones. Ha ha! They're also extraordinarily good, according to my advisers.') 
- World Domination Enterprises: 'Catalogue Clothes (12")' (Product Inc.)
- Wild Swans: 'Revolutionary Spirit (12")' (Zoo)
- (JP: 'I was lying in bed the other night thinking about you, as I so often do, and I thought, "I don't play these blighters nearly enough surf music," so...')
- (JP: 'To end the programme this week, another track from...')
- (JP: 'And that's the end of another powerful human drama, another John Peel's Music From BFBS...Hope you'll join me at the same time next week. Until then, goodbye.')
09 October 1986
- (JP: 'We haven't actually worked out what I was going to say at the start of the programme, so erm, apart from programme, John Peel's Music, and BFBS...um...er...oh, the Mighty Lemon Drops.')
