14 March 1992
74 minutes of the 2 hour show, prematurely joined together into one file but missing start of show and middle section.
This is Kershaw's first Saturday show (9 - 11pm) having moved from the same time slot on a Sunday evening.
Dated by Kershaw mentioning Peel's session guests of Spiritualised and Leatherface.
Kershaw mentions the "rock 'n' roll banger racing extravaganza" that he and Peel have volunteered to take part in the following
evening, Sunday 15th March, at Wimbledon. He later points out that the advert for the event places him and Peel at the bottom on the bill,
beneath early Seventies chart band Mungo Jerry.
On Wednesday of this week Kerhsaw had been knocked off his bike by a car driver, but wasn't hurt.
BB King. Repeat of session recorded 09-Mar-1989 and first broadcast 30-Mar-1989 (Kershaw claims it was recorded in September 1989). Missing session track 'The Thrill Is Gone'.

AK: You'll excuse me for these first couple of programmes on a Saturday I hope, if I don't really seem myself because it is going to take a couple of weeks to settle in... Me and John have also swapped over studios
and I'm not in a studio that I'm accustomed to. All the controls and all the instruments and things, things like the CD players, are all on the other side. I've discovered since 9 o'clock it's a bit like waking up in the
morning and discovering that you've become left-handed overnight.
