  • Introduction: “John Peel celebrates the life and times of the original teenage accessory: the 45 rpm record.”
  • Documentary written and presented by Peel in an era when the traditional 7" single appeared in terminal decline from the spread of other formats, most notably the CD. “I’m inclined to believe that potential buyers are ultimately bewildered by the multiplicity of formats and go off and buy that jacket they saw in the charity shop instead. Could it be that what the record industry sees as skillful marketing will turn out to be the longest shooting yourself in the foot exercise of all time?”
  • Guests include Mike Berry, Tony Holmes (Juke Joint, Sheffield), Mickie Most, Tony Wilson (Factory Records), Allan Jones (Music Week), Pete Waterman, Anderson Hynes (Ruthless Rap Assassins), Ronnie Clary (45 specialist record shop owner) and David Gedge.
