In 1990, Peel recorded a series of eight shows for broadcast while he was on holiday in the first two weeks of August, each featuring a vintage session from The Fall and records from a similar timeframe. At the start of the first programme he explained the thinking behind the series:

"A few weeks ago, someone writing in the NME said that these programs were the same in 1990 as they had been in 1980. I thought 'He's right you know' and decided to play you lots of records from 1980, 81, along with a classic session from The Fall. Hence the awful 'Fall In August' title."
