Peel had enjoyed a curry with members of the Cravats earlier in the evening. He indicates that two of them are in the studio with him at he start of the programme. JP: "The Cravats, who are to Redditch what Robert Louis Stevenson was to Blackpool."
The Cravats pair are hitch hiking back to Redditch, so Peel asks listeners to look out for them and give them a lift. JP - "Ah, the romance, the glamour, the glory of being in a rock and roll band... The Shend is very big and looks menacing, but he isn't."
Members of the group Virginia Doesn't had met Peel at Broadcasting House and asked for a record to be played for them.
Both sides of the new singles by the Chords and the Skids are aired.
Wonders aloud when Earcom 2 will be released on Fast Records..the one that went on to feature Joy Division.
JP: "That's Artery from Sheffield. Just think, if they wanted to, tomorrow they could go over and see Simon Bates doing his programme from his bed in Huddersfield. I can't get up there. It's terribly, terribly disappointing you know."
