  • There is a competition in the programme to win tickets to come to Maida Vale on Wednesday 26 May 2004 for the Grime night. The answer is 'John Peel'!
  • Peel admits that he missed this year's Eurovision Song Contest, "to my great regret".
  • In the Championship play-off second leg, Ipswich Town had been beaten 2-0 away by West Ham earlier in the evening. The resulting 2-1 loss on aggregate ended Ipswich's hopes of returning to the Premiership for another season at least. In the play-off final at the end of the month, West Ham would lose to Crystal Palace. [1]
  • John is disappointed to hear that Twat Vibe have split up. JP: "Yet another disappointment tonight. This has not been a good night for me, I have to say."



JP: "Somebody just spoke to me there. Voices in my head. Somebody said, 'I'll just try it again a bit quicker'. A voice said that to me. Anyway, I'll press on."
JP: "On Friday and Saturday of last week, Louise the producer and myself spent almost two complete days going through boxes of unheard CDs that are stacked up around Peel Acres and that was one of the things that we found in there."
