  • Only around an hour of the two-hour show is currently available.
  • Peel says he thinks the b-side of the Alternative TV single is a "great deal better" but can't play it due to "proscribed naughty words that will have you all out in the streets suiting action to them".
  • PragVEC are in the studio with Peel, who has also just received a postcard from Adam & The Ants (from Belgium).
  • The Mary Monday & The Bitches single later turned up in John Peel's Record Box.
  • BBC Radio 1-4 have only one record cleaner between them and Radio 3 have just arrived to collect it.
  • The Original Wings are a Nigerian band and nothing to do with "Paul McCartney’s little combo". Peel says he played a track by the former a couple of years earlier, "but I don’t suppose for a moment you remember that."
  • JP notes that the Motorhead single appeared "in the bottom reaches" of the previous week's chart, but he hasn't seen this week's chart (it had dropped out).

(JP: "Well, when you walk through me, you're going to have to cope with a lot of unsightly fat, I'm afraid.")
(JP: “Seems to be a bit of a shortage of good rowdy records like that these days. A little less guitar and a little bit more of Monday, Mary Monday, would have satisfied me, but there you are. A great record I think.”)
(JP: “These are the Punishments again…")

(JP: “Another from Adam & The Ants…”)
(JP: “And while that was going on, a member of the band PragVEC, who let me remind you again are on tomorrow night’s programme, along with White Cats, told me that Paul Gambaccini was uglier than I am. This is wonderful news, wonderful news. This is the last also from Punishment Of Luxury.")
