  • Start of show: “Hi kids, time for me to take you out.”
  • Peel says the previous week’s shows may not have been “the models of coherence you have come to expect,” as he was working Diazepam out of his system (taken in order to fly from Delhi to London).
  • The tracklisting for the Technical Itch DJ set session is taken from the site and does not appear in Ken Garner's Peel Sessions.
  • The Etta James and Ann Cole tracks are played as an example of R&B response records. JP says he would like to see the tradition revived.
  • Peel says he failed in an attempt to log onto his own chat page the previous day. He claims his page has had less hits than any other current Radio One DJ and says it looks a bit colourless. Ponders having some of his holiday pictures added.
  • News: Scottish football in uproar as all the SPL clubs except Rangers and Celtic have left the league in a row over TV cash.
