Altered Images' Song Sung Blue, featuring Peel on vocals and whistling, is played for Louise and Hermeet, who had apparently been unaware of its existence until the previous week: "So I'm going to play it for them now. They will not have heard this before."
In response to an anonymous email asking if he likes art, John replies that Paul Klee has been a long-time favourite.
Given the date, Peel mentions that he used to own "a magnificent record" called "Fireworks". He can't remember the name of the artist, but a listener later supplies the information that this is by DJ Force & Styles. JP: "I would have started tonight's programme with it if I hadn't lost it a couple of years ago." He adds that if anybody has a spare copy, he will be happy to buy it from them.
Peel had been pressed into babysitting grandson Archie in the morning of the day before. "He cried continuously from the moment I took him in hand and didn't stop until I surrendered him again."

JP: "One of the reasons I'm having trouble reading tonight is the fact that I lost my glasses in Brighton - one of the many things that happened there. I'm having to wear some very old pair of glasses that I used to wear back in the days when I was afore the mast in the South China Seas. They're enormous. It's like wearing a greenhouse on your face. Obviously a cause of much merriment around the building but I can't see through them terribly well."
