Start of show: "Well, hello again dearly beloved, this is John Peel's Music On BFBS. Throaty!"
John is intrigued by the mail he's received this week, including one of a set of three linked postcards from Alex, and some rawlplugs from BFBS head office, which he fears may be a modern form of voodoo.
Wriggler: 'We Control The Sound (12")' (Sophisticated Underground Sounds)
(JP: 'I've just come back from a week in... Cleethorpes and Hull and Grimsby, and the second part (of the week) in places around Glasgow, but not actually in Glasgow itself, like Motherwell and Lanark and Hamilton,and at one stage Bellshill... we spent the best part of the day with Sean Dickson, once a Soup Dragon and now of the High Fidelity, and amongst other things he showed us where Sheena Easton spent much of her childhood, and indeed the hospital where she was born. This was an intensely moving moment for all of us.')
