The session was originally broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on June 17, 1981 according to Deb Danahay.[1] The session has been re-broadcast more recently by BBC 6 Music in 2009. [2]

This session is sometimes referred to as a John Peel session, however there does not seem to be any evidence that John Peel had ever invited Depeche Mode for a session.[3]

Boys Say Go! from this session appears on the compilation 1 And Only • 25 Years Of Radio 1 (Band Of Joy BOJCD25), released in 1992. The track is erroneously titled "Boys Say No" on this compilation.
