  • Programme comes from Peel Acres. JP: "The heating has gone in our house. We've all been huddled together for warmth, but I've broken away from the group in order to come and do this programme."
  • As also mentioned in last night's programme, John has spent a considerable amount of time over the festive period listening through items from the piles of unheard music stacked around the house. He expresses his disappointment at finding very few records he feels are worth sharing with the listeners - the compilation LP "Fields And Streams" on the Kill Rock Stars label is one that bucks the trend.
  • Peel describes "One Live in Nottingham" as "a traumatic week in lots of ways."
  • The Pig's Big 78 had been sent to Peel through the post and had arrived "fatally cracked", along with another 10" that didn't survive the journey. Peel advises anyone thinking of donating 78s to the programme not to send them in the mail.



JP: "Do you know, every time when I'm played this record I've thought I'd introduce it by playing a little bit of Stravinsky. Up until now, I've not done it - and I'm not doing it tonight. But one of these days, it will be hilarious. You'll love it."

  1. Track "Cut Out To FL" is announced, but a different track gets played. JP: "Right LP, wrong track."
