Comments
  • Start of show: "Hello again, hewers of wood and drawers of water, it's time for another crisp new John Peel's Music On BFBS. This seems like an appropriate start."
  • John details the places that he has officially opened, something he usually resists doing. The first was a record shop in Camden at the end of the 1960s; the second, in around 1982, a flower show in Battisford; the third in 1996 at an animal feed store in Bury St Edmunds (his pay being a year's supply of layers pellets); and his most recent was an invitation to open a resource centre in Stowmarket, at which the local dignitary forgot his name when introducing him. "That is just perfect. Things like that give me so much pleasure."

Tracklisting

(JP: 'Anybody who writes in and says "That's the best record you've played this week" is in trouble, I'll warn you about that now.')
