(Introduction to show, mood of Peel, interesting comments, etc. If possible, please add mentions of gigs attended, football matches, TV appearances, etc, for use elsewhere on John Peel Wiki.)
Notable for the first play of a Half Man Half Biscuit session.
Also for debut play of Soup Dragons from a flexi single from a mag, and for plays of the debut singles by Chumbawamba and A Witness, the latter at least sounds like a first playing judging by JP's comments.
Full episode by John Leonhard's Dad can be found on the Mooo Server.
