Programme comes from Peel Acres.
Peel had passed Chris Morris ('The Day Today', 'Brass Eye', 'Blue Jam') in the street that day but had been too frightened to say hello.
Having played a cover version of Wanda Jackson's "The Box It Came In" on Tuesday night, Peel had gone out shopping the next day and bought a record featuring Jackson's original to play this evening.
Tonight's Pig's Big 78 was only played on Tuesday night's programme. Peel's rather sheepish comments afterwards suggest that this wasn't the track he intended to play in this evening's show.
Looking ahead a few weeks to when he will be taking a fortnight's break from the show, Peel is now lukewarm on the likelihood that Rod Stewart will present one of the programmes.

JP: " Mary Anne Hobbs, if you're listening to the programme tonight, your present is installed here at Peel Acres and is illuminating the studio even as I speak, or the room we rather affectedly call the studio anyway."
