Start of show: "The most unpleasant surprise seems to be that the clock in here is wrong and we're starting two and a half minutes early, but that gives us time to play more records. We're live from the Maida Vale studios with a rather attractive live audience and Luke Slater's going to be playing for us shortly. Here's a record you ought to recognise, I think, to start the programme."
We learn why Arthur K Adams' 'Wildwood Flower', which eventually turned up in John Peel's Record Box meant so much to him. JP had the 45 by the Dallas bluesman in his singles collection in the States and it was never sent on to him. Although it was the one record Peel most wanted to hear again, he failed to hunt down another copy for 35 years. The copy he plays here is one a friend of a friend has just sent him from the States. He seems pretty thrilled to hear the track again.
Tells the sender of an email from Stockton, California ("Limey Buster"), who asks why English DJs are so boring and wants more Santana, to "blow it out of your ass, needle-dick!"
