BitTorrent & media round-up from the John Peel Archives.
Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3:
Something I should have featured ages ago is the sterling work being undertaken by Finnish Phil, as I privately refer to him. Featuring programmes John Peel made for various European radio stations. There are currently three torrents available with the promise of more to come.
John Peel shows from Finnish radio pt. 3 [449MB]
John Peel shows from Finnish radio pt. 2 [645MB]
John Peel shows from Finnish radio pt. 1 [748MB]
Euro Peel links
The John Peel Record Box torrent: mp3 versions of the 7” vinyl collection. An incomplete but on-going project passionately sourced by some very nice folk over at the I Love Music forum, where current torrent links are posted – help with the project if you can. The tracks are also to be found using slsk.
John Peel’s Record Box TV Documentary:
The previous mentioned channel 4 television programme at the wonderfully eclectic and my personal tracker of choice, Secret Cinema, is still available.
John Peel’s Record Box
Many more John Peel television programmes are to come including BBC2’s John Peel Night, Travels With My Camera, DJ Heaven, Snapshots and This Is Your Life, though I’m slightly worried not to have located this one along with the others, but it should hopefully materialise with a bit more searching. A pc is currently being put together for the sole purpose of capping and seeding these.
New to BitTorrent?
I recommend these free clients:
1/ utorrent (No installation required. No fuss. Perfect for beginners.)
2/ ABC (More features. Open Source.)
3/ Azureus (Not tried this but comes highly recommended. Requires Java.)
BitTorrent guide and much more useful info.
As with all file sharing formats, once you have the completed file please continue to share so that all may benefit. It also encourages those responsible to post again.
Please note we don’t link to or promote anything that is commercially available. If it’s in the shops, buy it. Indie bands more than anybody need to recoup their advance. This site is for fans of John Peel and for people who want to discover more about the man.
