Some confusion about the date of this show. On this point: (K) There was no show on the 28th. This is a giveaway from Peel's opening link: "Apologies about last night's show... I did not discover until Saturday that I was surplus to requirements". The Monday 28/8/89 show was cancelled (Bank Holiday); the Tuesday 29th with The Telescopes repeat - andrew's tape - was pre-recorded earlier that day, obviously now I think about it so John Walters could get Peel down to the surprise 50th birthday gig at Subteranea that night; the recording of that party went out on wed 30th as we know; then on Thurs 31st it was the show with Where's The Beach that Peel had also pre-recorded on the 29th thinking it was for his birthday.
(Andrew) Apologies for confusion. The tape does say 28th August (Monday) but a diary from that year says that I recorded Peel for the first time in ages on the Tuesday (29th August). Bound to be more inaccurate dates to come, keep your eyes, erm, peeled.
