  • Peel's opening words: "In case you missed tonight's football results, it was Spurs 2 Liverpool 2 although Spurs were leading 2-0 at one stage. Himself scored a couple of goals so at least we get one point out of that."
  • After the first record in the show, "Since I last spoke with you I've become a father for the fourth time - Florence - we haven't decided on the rest of the names yet and she's bound to be called Flossie I rather suspect. I've been trying to find records about Flossies and Florences but without any success although I've got one which I played actually about a month ago by the Paragons called 'Florence' but it's such an awful recording I don't think it would be entirely fair."
  • Peel says he celebrated the new arrival by having "a solitary Indian in rather a revolting Indian restaurant" in Ipswich on his way home. He was gratified when a fellow customer bought him a drink upon hearing his news.
  • Show features three tracks from the Associates "Sulk" LP.
  • The news either side of the show is dominated by the sinking of the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano, which had been torpedoed the day before.
