Start of show: “Well, I see we managed to give mighty Chesterfield a bit of a seeing to tonight (Liverpool had won 3-1 at Anfield against the lower-division opposition in the League Cup). Tonight we have a very special, wonderful, all star, all singing, all dancing programme on the eve of Olivia Newton John’s 31st birthday, featuring Shoes For Industry – five frantic funsters from Bristol, plus 12 recent tracks from American challengers, and both sides of the next Undertones single. Shall we get on with things?”
JP: "All day, the BBC switchboard has been jammed in the traditional manner by people phoning up to ask why it was that I didn't read out any of my colleagues' records of the week, as has become traditional also in last night's programme. To be honest with you, they're such a horrid bunch that I was ashamed for them. But I'll do it anyway. DLT has chosen 'Baby Blue' by Dusty Springfield , Simon Beast has chosen 'Sh-Boom' by the Marvels , the best of the lot actually, I think. Paul [Burnett] has chosen 'Teenage Girls' by Exposé , Andy [Peebles] 'Spooky' by the Atlanta Rhythm Section  and Kid Jerkin 'Rendezvous' by the East Side Band . See what I mean?"
An unknown benefactor has left Peel a complete set of three LPs and eight singles by Lieutenant Pigeon at the BBC. He regrets he is unable to thank them in person “in my own special way.”
Plays the first side of the new Undertones single with the warning that it doesn't grab you by the throat as much as previous ones. Afterwards maintains that they are the best band in the world. Holds back the b-side (Let's Talk About Girls) for the second hour of the show.
