- After the previous show (17 August 1978), when Peel promised not to start and end tonight with Siouxsie and Ashley Hutchings, he does the reverse - starting with AH and ending with the Banshees (although the latter are followed by the Kop Choir).
- Most of the show is now available, though a few minutes are missing, mainly at the start of the file and some tape flips. Following the appearance of T019, the order of remaining segments has been revised, as sides a and b of T020 must have been recorded in reverse order. The file has been combined into one and reuploaded.
- Earlier in the evening, Peel has been to an NME function for a departing staff member, discussed Only Ones singles with Kid Jensen, and also visited the Marquee to see Hot Water supporting the Ramrods. 
- Hilarious section before the Who track, where he refers to his earlier appearance on Kaleidoscope on Radio 4 discussing with Paul Gambaccini an exhibition of Who memoribilia at the ICA. The last time he did something like this Walters had pointed out that he had adopted an entirely different accent. To demonstrate this he plays a clip of his Kaleidoscope appearance before cutting over it with "What a prat!"
- JP ends the show by playing the Kop Choir to mark the return of "a greater reality" the next day - the start of the new football season. Peel plans to be at Anfield to watch Liverpool's first game (against QPR, a 2-1 win).
- Last words: "Where are you, Kid Jerkin?" (Fellow DJ and friend David Jensen was a QPR fan, although he later switched to Crystal Palace).
- Good quality recording of the show has become available via tape DB002 of the Derby Box from the start of the program through to the Chilli Willi track. The rest of the show was on the original tape DB003 but this was erased (marked as DG on the tracklisting sheets - for Degaussed!)
- Blast Furnace only session, recorded 19th June 1978, repeat, first broadcast by JP 11 July 1978, originally broadcast by KJ 3rd July 1978. Referred to as "Blast Furnace And" by JP, as "Blast Furnace +" by the cassette tracklistings, "Blast Furnace And the Heatwaves" by Ken's Book but simply as "Blast Furnace" on Discogs. Featured NME journalist Charlies Sharr Murray.
- Hits: only session, recorded 6th June 1978, repeat, first broadcast 23 June 1978. The band were generally known as the Snivelling Shits, but changed their name for the session. Feaured Sounds journalist Giovanni Dadamo.

Occasional fades of the left hand channel on T020 and T021, and some overdriving on the right hand channel on T019, have been equalised using Audacity.
- 2) available in high quality from tape DB002 and DB010 of the Derby Box
