Comments
  • Peel is in good spirits and sounds as if he's enjoying himself. Before the first track, however, he comments on a newspaper poll which suggests that most young people approved of the sentences given to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards for possession of drugs; of course he and his listeners disagree, but JP is saddened to think they are in a minority.
  • Peel encourages his listeners to attend a gathering in Hyde Park later that day, and claims not to know what the event is actually about; in fact, it is the Legalise Pot Rally (poster here). "Perfumed Garden listeners will be recognisable from the light radiating from their foreheads", he says...
  • As for his life on board ship, JP mentions that he won thirty shillings from Pete Drummond on the result of the British Grand Prix but has been too lazy to select the winner of his Zodiac: Cosmic Sounds contest.
  • After the Shadows of Knight track he asks his listeners if they could supply him with copies of records he doesn't have - the Creation's singles "Making Time" and "Painter Man" (the "two early ones", not in the Radio London library as the station's copies were "given away by someone else"), and the Big Three's "You've Got To Keep Her Under Hand", a lifelong favourite which was found in his Record Box.
  • The available portion of this show starts at 12.14 a.m. and lasts 75 minutes.

Other
  • Because of the age of this off-air recording, the quality is like listening to a very old mono radio, with medium wave distortion at times - even if Radio London's state-of-the-art American studio equipment (far more up-to-date than what the BBC was using at the time) ensures that the music comes through loud and clear.
