Comments
  • First, highly enthusiastic, play of long-term Peel favourite 'There Must Be Thousands' by The Quads. Described as "the best record of the year." Would later feature in John Peel's Record Box.
  • NME writer Paul Morley is present in the studio, a fact commented on several times by Peel. Morley's highly respectful interview/article on the day, including this show, is available at Fades In Slowly.
  • Three tracks from Swell Maps album.
  • Other notable plays include the Lori & The Chameleons single on Zoo. The Chameleons were actually former ex-Big In Japan members Bill Drummond (later KLF, etc) and Dave Balfe (later Teardrop Explodes, etc). Read the Julian Cope review at Head Heritage. A Big In Japan track, Match Of The Day, is played at the end of the show, ahead of the Charity Shield two days later (Liverpool would beat Arsenal 3-1).
