Although the opening track of the show is missing from the recording taken from tape L242, it seems very, very likely that the programme opened with the November Wedding Present single, 'The Queen of Outer Space'. Going off the timings until the 11:30 news, it is safe to assume that only one track is missing from the start of the show. The recording begins with Peel discussing the Wedding Present and what I presume is the Pig's opinion of the track just played. This was the year in which the band released a new single every month. Peel often played both A and B sides of each single in the same show once he'd received them, and this month's B side does indeed pop up 25 minutes later.
