- BBC Radio One 10.00 pm John Peel Show. First broadcast of second Tubeway Army session, featuring tracks that would later appear on Gary Numan's first solo album The Pleasure Principle: Films, Airlane, Cars, Conversation.
- As a sign of the imminent dissolution of the group Peel already refers to the group as 'Gary Numan's Tubeway Army' stating that it's "his/their first ever session". He also wrongly predicts that Tubeway Army's "Are 'Friends' Electric?" will not make number one in the BBC Chart.  (see 26 June 1979)
- Sport: Wimbledon 79 begins.
