• John Peel Show
  • BBC Radio One
  • 1997-10-16
  • Incomplete show. Tape cuts in during the Vivian Jackson song. Ends shortly into the second-last track of the night.
  • Peel credits the Hollywood Persuaders track to Frank Zappa (pre-Mothers Of Invention) and Paul Buff, as per the 'Teen Beat 4' CD. Original single was released in 1964 with an album of the same name the following year. The track also appears on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, although the level of Zappa's involvement on it seems unclear. He did play on/produce some tracks released under this name.
  • The Ivor Cutler track prompts a discussion with Mary Anne Hobbs about the relative merits of using the words "breast" and "penis" on Radio One.
