Full tracklisting from the PasB of the BBC Written Archives Centre.
Music session from American folk singer Patrick Sky and poetry from Eddie Linden.
Peel plays a 1956 single, the famous "Ying Tong Song" by the Goons, who featured Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe. In Margrave of the Marshes he admits to being a Goons fan in his youth, during his National Service, but said he wasn't so keen on their humour once he got older.
Classical music appears in the playlist, in compositions by Krzysztof Penderecki (which made an impression on his listeners, as he played it more than once on "son of Night Ride") and Richard Strauss, from the soundtrack to "2001: A Space Odyssey".
The varied playlist also includes the second single by Barclay James Harvest (who Peel liked in their early days), one of the Grateful Dead's more avant-garde tracks, Andean flute music ( Los Calchakis), Thai opera, and rockabilly by Al Downing.
