After the White Stripes first few songs, Peels asks if the band want to take a break or carry on. Jack White: "We can stop for now, Mr Peel." JP: "Dr Peel, if you don’t mind."
The band are going to be playing Liverpool for the first time. JP: "Finest place, of course. I say that as a man that doesn’t live there, you know, so it’s easy for me to say that sort of thing. But there are an awful lot of people who love Liverpool who don’t live there, and I am but one of them."
(JP: Last time the White Stripes were on the programme I was discussing with them after the programme Stanley Winston’s “No More Ghettos In America,” which they had never heard. They have now, because I played it to them earlier on this evening, but here it is again. And amazing that this is the only record as far as I know that Stanley ever made – and nobody knows a thing about him.)
(JP: This next a football song, because we have not had one in the course of the programme so far … And whenever the John Peel Roadshow goes out, about once every couple of years, this record is always included in its set.)
(JP: And there’s a bit of a presentation occurring here – no thought at all for the fact that I’m trying to do a radio programme here. A farewell to Anita the producer. Oh my lord! And an extravagant chocolate-covered cake, with a load of éclairs on and things, because Anita obviously rather keen on cake.)
