Part 1

(JP: 'This week's mail gets off to an excellent start with a letter from John Carr from Louth in Lincolnshire on the subject of personalised numberplates, which I occasionally wax lyrical about. It says, "With regard to what you said about personalised numberplates, I see that David Hamilton recently paid £65,000 for one with 'Diddy' on it. The man should be chemically castrated."' JP laughs.) *

Part 2

(JP: 'Somebody was on the Mayo phone again during the week and asked me to play something by Half Japanese, And here is something by Half Japanese. It's that rare thing in this programme, a Bruce Springsteen song.')
(JP: 'Well, I think that's the way it should be done actually, although Andy Kershaw and about twenty million other people wouldn't agree with me.')

  1. As JP mentions, this was intended to promote an album called 'Penetration Boulevard'. It was never released. Since the EP is a 7 inch at 33 rpm, Peel plays it at the wrong speed.
