Peel's sunnier mood returns after the previous night's grumpiness: this can probably be attributed to a) the show coming live from Peel Acres, and b) P J Harvey playing live from there.
He resolves his own query by playing the original (by Raymonde) of a song that Morrissey had covered in the previous night's session.
Although he professes not to understand some of her choices, he plays some records that Polly Jean has brought to the house (and then plays the wrong Howlin' Wolf track: 'Back Door Man' was the one requested).
Comment: "It's really annoying that I've got to wait until Tuesday before I can do another radio programme. I had a meeting with the boss of Radio One earlier in the week, and I was hoping he would say, "Look John, you're doing such a fantastic job that we want you to do a two-hour programme every single night of the week": but, alas, my hopes were dashed. Maybe at another time it'll happen, I don't know." Two months later, his programme time was put back an hour, so that it ran from 11 p.m.-1 a.m.: maybe he was alluding to this?
