Show Edit

  • 1982-08-16
  • Peel has a new bike, and has already suffered his first puncture.
  • Says Kid Jensen’s shows have been getting really good, and he plays all the records Peel was planning to play – “most vexing.” JP finds out after programming the Bankrobbers followed by Bankrobber by the Clash that Jensen had done the same thing the previous week – “What can I say? Eclipsed again.”
  • After the first session track from the Nightingales, plays five secondhand records he has just bought (for no more than 1.50 in total) in a row - "No particular reason, but just because it makes it nice to have a break from me, I suppose."
  • JP manages to jump in at the false ending of Drowning Out The Big Jets by session band Action Pact, despite a warning note from producer Dale Griffin.
