Start of show: "Stand by for thrills and spills on the high wire. It's another John Peel's Music On BFBS, this week featuring Charlie Von Beeny's Dancing Horses and the lovely Janine. It's all in the mind."
Show date now confirmed: the news states it is the last Sunday before the General Election (April 9) and the FA Cup results are Sunderland beating Norwich City 1-0 and Liverpool (who went on to win the Cup) drawing 1-1- with Portsmouth.
(JP: 'Could be one of the survivors, I think, from the current generation of teen-terrific bands...I look forward to hearing more records from them as soon as possible. They did a session, I think I mentioned before, for my domestic programmes, which was an absolute corker.')
(JP: 'I've never been much of an enthusiast for plastic surgery, and you might say, "Well, you damn well ought to be", and I would have deserved that. I've got a lump on the side of me nose, and it always looks like I've been bitten by something, and I've often thought, "Have that lopped off," but it's sort of part of me, and I'll leave it where it is. But we always used to joke about the great DJ Alan Freeman, who I've always regarded as, if people say, "Who's the greatest DJ who ever lived?," an extraordinary question to ask, but when they do, I always name Fluff, because I do think he's quite magnificent. I used to do a programme immediately after the one that he did, and used to do trails for it, John Walters and I, he was the producer of the programme. He used to make a great number of offensive remarks about Fluff, as you might imagine. One of the theories that we had was that he'd had so many facelifts that his ears had passed each other on the top of his head, and if you look very closely at him, his ears were on upside down.')
