Start of show: 'Hello again, and welcome to the People's Radio Programme....We've got an unprecedented number of requests for students with silly names.'
John makes repeated references to a gig at Edinburgh University the previous Saturday.
Kid Jensen appears to be still in the studio, and can be heard in the background at one point.
Action Pact, #1. Recorded 1982-02-06. No known commercial release.
Cure, #5 (repeat). Recorded 1981-12-21. No known commercial release. Ken Garner indicates in The Peel Sessions that the Cure session was to have included a fourth track, 'The Hanging Garden', but that this was neither finished nor broadcast.
JP: 'Something else wonderful happened to me at the University of Edinburgh on Saturday night: somebody gobbed on the back window of my car. Isn't that a revolutionary gesture? Don't you wish you'd thought of it yourself? It's all dried out now and gone white: it looks most peculiar.'
JP: 'One of the things which I'm always very interested to see, and I speak as a chap who's very pleased at being one quarter Scottish, is that I always look for things that are forced Scottishery, if you see what I mean, which must be most galling to people who are actually fully Scottish.' (Edit seems to follow here.)
JP: 'That's Action Pact, demonstrating...that it's still possible to make some kind of movement within the punk tradition, as Vice Squad do, in my view, without just being humourless and playing absurdly fast, and singing quite unintelligible lyrics.' (Another tape edit.)
JP: 'You're probably thinking to yourself, "Old Peelie playing records at the wrong speed again", but it's not. It's 33 and a third, it won't go any slower.'

1) Orginally shared via The Peel Tapes. Mp3 reup by so_it_goes_2512 on Peel Mailing List, in order to make the show available to those without software capable of playing the original file format. In addition, the original recording was at rather a low volume: this was corrected using Audacity 1.3 (Beta). The show itself ends at 01:41:27 and is followed by 31 minutes of 'Round Midnight' with Brian Matthew and some perfectly awful MOR music suitable for taxi drivers with high caffeine levels. [SIG] This indicates that, assuming the original tape ran at the correct speed, and due to the audible presence of at least two tape edits, 0:18:33 of the show is missing: however, all session tracks are preserved intact.
