12 December 1992
Show dated by forthcoming gig details. Kershaw at first mentions a gig by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, which is to take place
"next Sunday, 13th December, a week tomorrow". He later realises that this is in fact the next day.
The Old Hat Dance Band live in the "next village along" from John Peel. "John's agreed to nip round there
fairly soon, as boy Kershaw's messenger, to invite them to come and record a session for us."
Barrence Whitfield and the Savages.

* Peel pops into the studio off-air during the next track to give Kershaw the correct pronounciation of 'gipping'. It's the river that flows through Stowmarket.
