The two tracks in brackets are inserted as artists only on the playlist, however they both appear on the compilation "Bananas!" (Rodney, 1989), which was featured in this show, and was brought in by Guy Lovelady.

"Correction Train" is the source of the oft-used OTW sting "This is your popular station where your music comes first".

Also near the end is an interview with Fenny reporting from the first leg of the Football League Second Division playoff between Blackburn Rovers and Watford.

BBC Radio Lancashire split frequencies on this occasion, with OTW being broadcast on FM, and presumably on MW was commentary of the match.
