  • The programme comes from Peel Acres.
  • Peel sounds choked up making his introduction.
  • He is asked about the missing Piss LP and replies that he's still looking for it.
  • During the show he tells again the story of seeing The Beat play at Aston University and giving them his fee so that they'd play their set again. JP: "Afterwards, Ranking Roger sat in the front seat of our car. When I got home, I was able to say to the Pig, 'Ranking Roger sat in my car last night.' She was very impressed by that indeed."
  • Peel also mentions that son William Ravenscroft had seen the Immortal Lee County Killers recently in Newcastle, "and said they were pretty dazzling. In fact, he went to see them again the following night, that's how good they were."
  • The Pig's Big 78 comes from their friend Sparrow Harrison. "It's got a crack in it."
  • After playing the track by Jack White - this a Jack White from the 1930s - Peel jokes that Vocalion Records have just emailed him to tell him to stop playing the record immediately. He then comments that XL records still haven't given him permission to play the latest White Stripes LP.


  • David Jack, one and only session. Recorded 2003-09-03. No known commercial release.


JP: "Well good evening pals. At 8:21 this morning Archie Ravenscroft was born. This is for him and Danda and Ashley, his parents."
JP: "But will he play for Liverpool or QPR? That's the problem."
JP: "It's time now for Grandma's Big 78. I promise not to call it that every night."
JP: "That was called Mr Wonderful... and that was the title too of an LP made by Fleetwood Mac back in 1968 before they became rubbish."
JP: "Thanks very much for listening. Sleep well, Archie."
