It’s awfully dull to publish apologies and excuses rather than updates to one’s blog – almost as bad as using one of those ‘under construction’ images. Almost, but not quite. Anyway the point I wanted to make is that the reasons for the infrequency of my posting is related to poor health and not due to any dwindling interest in the late and great Peelster or this site. People who send me news and links however will always take priority over anything I have to say because it’s John’s legacy I wish to promote not my own delusions of adequacy. So with all that out the way and my guilt tendencies somewhat pacified…
John Peel Shows From Finnish Radio Part 4:
…is now available via the following torrent links. Woohoo! A big thank you to finnish-phil for this excellent series and for keeping me informed:
John Peel Tape And File Project:
Let’s also not forget the mighty dubster over at the John Peel Tape And File Project who, despite my previous critcisms over the free download sites, continues to make available some great peel material (well it looks good to me.) Maybe it’s time I did a bit of trading with the man….hmmmm.
The Peel Tapes:
Jon’s site has four shows recorded by Peelie fo BFBS – that’s the British Forces Broadcasting Service to you – plus two other complete radio 1 programmes from 2003. One of my own, rather inadequate, claims-to-fame is that I once spent a few days installing new data links for the UK BFBS studios. I’d like to tell you more but it’s probably subject to the official secrets act and then, as we say, they’d have to kill me.
The Yank Sizzler:
Podcasts, podcasts, everyone has one it seems but this one from Peel fan Lawrence in the US is both eclectic and professionlly put together and comes highly recommended. Five shows are currently available last I looked and full tracklisting is available on site. Direct from Kansas, gateway to oz.
I know I had some other things on my mind but they seem to have wandered off, except to say that if you have time and are of a benevolent nature please view this website and help in any way you can.
Thank you and goodnight.
