  • A little bit morbid perhaps, but interesting to hear (again) all the same, the first half of the show on the day that Kurt Cobain's body was found. Peel worries that the mythologising will have already begun when one of the sadder basic aspects is the fact that Cobain had left a wife and daughter behind.
  • Cracking little tape too. First plays for Pulp's His'N'Hers LP - Joyriders and The Fall's 15 Ways.
  • Peel reveals that the shows over the last two weekends were pre-recorded, as he had taken a week's family holiday to France: "One of the children got so fed up with never going on holiday she actually sorted it all out herself and booked it all and everything. So we had a week in - we didn't know at the time that it was going to be so, but it was a heavily industrialised valley somewhere north of Marseilles. I found a good record shop in Marseilles and some of the consequences of my shopping there will crop up later in this programme and again in tomorrow afternoon's programme."
