Peel has just returned from a week's shore leave, to work the final two weeks before Radio London closes down. He says he is doing a daytime show for the first time in a while. The extracts here are from the first two hours of the 3.00-6.00 show.
He is in a jocular mood, sending up the advertisements, taking some of the records less than seriously and indulging in studio chat with fellow Big L DJs Pete Drummond and Willy Walker. At times his comic mannerisms are reminiscent of Frankie Howerd.
The recording is of poorer quality than most others which survive from the period.
A comprehensive guide to the Radio London playlist of this week can be found on the Fab Forty section of the station's website. It also verifies his account of coming out to the ship on the tender with "the girls from the (Radio London) office" to whom he dedicates a record (they are, he says, "very nice" and "very beautiful").
Please note that this show has also been shared, including in a reconstructed version, under the date 11 August 1967.
