  • Start of show: "Well, I'm a survivor of a pretty grim afternoon at Anfield last Saturday (Liverpool had beaten Brighton 1-0). I may tell you more about that later on, I may not - I can't say. On the programme, though, we have a session from Stiff Little Fingers, a brand new one, and also a brand new one from the Cockney Rejects - both timed very neatly to coincide with new LPs from the bands. Amongst the records, 012, Prophets, Slight Seconds, Linton Kwesi Johnson, the Pinkoes, Scars, Manicured Noise, Distributors, Specials, Pop Group, Steve Miro & The Eyes, Siouxsie & The Banshees - all of the usual names, all of the people you heard earlier on the Mike Read programme. To start, Any Trouble."
  • Gig at Lancaster University on previous Friday night was with Blast and the Pharaohs.
  • At the end of the first Cockney Rejects session track, Peel plays a clip of radio interview/commentary of a Kenny Dalglish goal from 1978 European Cup final, followed by the comment, "See you at Anfield next season, lads". The Rejects were big West Ham fans. Peel says he bought the Liverpool record at the weekend (presumably it was this one). Part of the clip would later appear on his FabicLive.07 compilation.
