  • The 7" singles by the Come Ons and They Come In Threes had been brought back from a trip to Detroit by former producer Anita Kamath.
  • Peel notes that there are an inordinate number of correspondents from Oxford on the programme.
  • Before tonight's Perfumed Garden slot: "This is from a band that I once did a gig with in the Orange Showgrounds in San Bernardino, California, in 1966. And they were as unpleasant a group of people that I've ever met in all of my life. So unpleasant in fact that as I left their dressing room after failing to speak to any of them, because they wouldn't speak to me because they were so busy doing their LA cool thing, that I said I'd never play another one of their records as long as I lived. I was lying of course. The Byrds..." The gig is referred to in Margrave Of The Marshes (p. 182) as also being one of the first ever played by Buffalo Springfield, dating it as 1966-04-15, according to online sources. [1] [2]
  • The track by Tungsten & Morph is dedicated to son Tom Ravenscroft, who had dined with his father earlier in the evening.
  • Peel starts the Buff Medways single at the wrong speed, explaining that it's a 7" that plays at 33 rpm. He can't reach over to re-cue it, so plays the Mclusky track ("because it's a CD it will play at the right speed no matter what") and then successfully gives it another spin.



JP: "That is believed by many experts to be the most soulful voice that there ever was, and they could have a point."
JP: "That's actually Anne Nightingale's copy of the record which I nicked. I'd better go and put it back on her desk I think."
