Peel appears to have had contrasting fortunes in his two gigs in Scotland the previous weekend. After an email from a listener saying how much he'd enjoyed Peel's DJ set in Edinburgh on the Saturday: "It was a good night and I did thoroughly enjoy myself. The night before in Glasgow, through no fault of the organisers, the Triptych people, it wasn't such a great success, because I think Mute Records were involved and for some unaccountable reason they decided that I had got to do my set in two parts, half an hour apart, and in different rooms. And as the equipment in the first room wasn't working, it made it really difficult to carry it off with conviction. So my apologies to anybody who came along hoping for a good time from me at least. I'm sure the bands and things that played were magnificent, but I was far from it." He later says that he hopes to go back to Glasgow in the future to play a full set.
