Peel had been at Portman Road on Saturday to see Ipswich Town open the season with a 2-1 win over Gillingham. While he was at the match, he discovered that the Hardcore artist Mark Brady (aka Breeze, of Breeze & Styles) is a follower of the club - "so expect many more of his records in these programmes."
John says he received "a bollocking from management" for the comments he'd made the previous evening about Liverpool striker Michael Owen.
Tonight's Pig's Big 78 was another of the purchases he'd made at an auction in Cambridgeshire over the weekend (as was the previous night's selection).
Looking forward to tomorrow evening's brand new session from the Fall, Peel notes that one of the recorded tracks is called 'What About Us'. He hopes that it's a cover of the Coasters track that he goes on to play. It isn't.
