Jollyroger over at The Furtive Fifty has posted one side of a tape from the year 2000: 20th July – Side 2 to be exact, with Side 1 to follow!
I feel guilty if I leave anyone out whether they’ve recently updated or not!
Thanks to Darryl for alerting me to the problem with the torrent feed. The John Peel Torrents Live Search Results is now fixed and working again.
Thanks also to everyone who voted in the Poll – even if, as I suspect, some of you may have voted more than once, you cheeky blighters. The results were still a good indication as to what you folks want and it looks to me like a Rapidshare/BitTorrent split, so I shall be responding to this in the very near future.
Apologies to Tom, and everyone else of course, for not uploading any Syd Barrett material or even acknowledging his passing here but as my own reclusive existence somewhat reflects that of Roger’s later years – without the financial assistance of Pink Floyd unfortunately – I’m afraid I couldn’t really deal with posting anything about it at the time. Although it’s sad for us to see him go I’m imagine it was an appreciable release for him.
Staying on a personal note I’m feeling somewhat more optimistic. I’m planning to buy a new car, (which I’ll hardly ever use but without one….), and having gained modest, short-term at least, finacial security, converting that back room into the recording studio space it’s been crying out to be for ages. Having produced one solo album for a friend I’m keen to get back into it. You might even get to hear some of my own work if I’m feeling particularly confident. Either way I hope to have some fun making lots of noise! The new and more powerful PC that will be required for this will mean a chance to digitise those John Peel TV programmes from video tape.
The whole point of this site is to share John Peel recordings and never let his contribution to our lives and the world of music ever be forgotten or taken for granted so I appreciate everyone that gets involved simply by leaving comments or otherwise.
May the spirit of Peel never fade from our lives
