- Now We Are One - Top 10
- On its first anniversary Tommy Vance broadcast the first rock chart as voted for by the Friday Rock Show listeners. Each listener was allowed to nominate 3 tracks on a postcard. Before the chart was broadcast no mention was made that it would be a “Top 10”. However, due to playing duration of many of the tracks the two hour show was limited to 10 tracks which became the standard for the annual event throughout the 1980s.
- From a collection of 274 tapes mixing John Peel shows, Friday Rock Shows and Alan Freeman Saturday Shows from 1978 to 1983. The Derby Box was acquired by the John Peel Yahoo Group.
- First 92 minutes of the show.
