- "Tonight is a special Friday Rock Show Red Nose Rock Show. Now as the whole universe knows, today has been and still in fact is Comic Relief. Today is set aside to make the United Kingdom laugh until it really hurts: hurts enough for you to open your pocket and part with some dosh. Yes, they're going to be giving it to people who have a lot less to live on than even the poorest student within the sound of our transmitters. At 10.30 tonight, we will open our special phone line on 01-637 4343 to log your pledges, take your requests, your dedications, crazy ideas or whatever. Then throughout the show we have to hear from various rockers with pledges of money, items for auction, surprises and special requests. Absolutely guaranteed to be a laugh, and I really really do hope that you're going to join in."
- Taper's comments: "This was the Comic Relief Special, which dates the show to 5 Feb 1988, which was the first annual Red Nose Day. Many songs are not played in full, especially the last three, which are clips only."
- Guests in the studio are Ian Gillan and Bruce Dickinson.
