A slightly complicated technical arrangement for this show, with Peel broadcasting from Peel Acres but tonight's guest playing a live set at Maida Vale. A programme assistant anchors things in the studio in London. John can't hear the live music properly unless he goes to the kitchen to listen to the radio there.
Peel says that he was going to take copies of Terrorizer magazine away with him to read on holiday, but "I thought to myself, I don't want to land in Los Angeles bearing copies of a magazine called 'Terrorizer' if you don't mind, cos they shoot first and ask questions afterwards."
Peel recommends the Habanero cafe on Pitt Street, Auckland as they were playing the Brook Benton & Dinah Washington single when he happened to be passing. Immediately afterwards they played a Jimmy Reed record, he says.
A listener emails Peel and asks him to plug an event in Workington, Cumbria, adding "are you going to tell the people of Silloth to stay away?". This is a reference to what Peel describes as "one of the most catastrophic gigs that the John Peel Roadshow ever did" where he had to be escorted from the premises by the police.
Peel had seen ex-Liverpool defender Alan Hansen at Heathow airport the previous day.
