Featured live studio performances by Gentlemen singing 'My Ego's Killing Me' and The Bowles Brothers Band performing 'Charlie's Nuts'. Peter Cook introduced the 'Riff of the Month' competition. Albums of the Week included The Ramones debut album and Southside Johnny. In 'Brain Damage', Clive James attacked the music reviews of Charles Shaar Murray. There was a nostalgic look back at Jerry Lee Lewis (taken from 'Whole Lotta Shakin' in 1964) in the 'As Time Goes By' section. Back in the studio, Clive James interviewed Peter Cook (possessed by his alter-ego 'Clive'). The last studio band, The Sex Pistols, performed 'Anarchy in the UK'. The show closed with location footage of the Dr Hook band getting into a taxi.
Three months after this episode was broadcast, Clive James wrote about his appearance on it in The Observer, and in particular expressed disapproval of the Sex Pistols, referring to Johnny Rotten -- whose name he had evidently forgotten - as "a foul-mouthed ball of acne calling himself something like Kenny Frightful".
