“A rare chance to hear this acclaimed series, presented by John Peel and first broadcast in 1985, which tells the story of the British teenager through music, archive and reminiscences.”
It’s time once again to man the editing block (ask your parents!), as “6 Music Plays It Again” but in bite-sized chunks of course. One ought not to complain though, because it’s good to know someone has the good sense to embark upon regular raids within the BBC archives.
Each of the original one hour episodes was split in two and broadcast over consecutive nights which necessitated a degree of creative editing that I only really embarked upon with any degree of flair from episode 3.
I might re-edit 1 and 2 if only to provide consistency, although I don’t think it will bother anyone too much, other than myself if, as I suspect, It becomes yet another of those empty ‘promises’ that you’ve doubtless come to expect from me.
Although fostering low expectations for this site must make anything a welcome bonus I imagine. Perhaps somewhat like the denial of a wife-beater’s prey whose loyalty rests on the claim that, “He’s actually quite a softie really”.
NOTICE: I foolishly named rar files, 1 & 2, the wrong way around. However the links are correct and so are the actual audio files within!
