John Peel’s Festive Fifty 1990

Probably the final post of the year and I’ll keep it short because I’m a miserable cunt and if I had my way I’d be off somewhere they don’t indulge in this intolerably churlish festive facade. Don’t get me started.

Couple of downloads for you then. We’ll kick off with a message from Uphallman.

Turn That Racket Down
I’ve upped ‘Turn That Racket Down’ on to a couple of torrent sites I use cos 1 is a members site and they are generally very good at seeding. The response has been amazing. I put it on at the weekend and it’s been downloaded 75 times in those few days. There are 11 seeders (plus me and I’ll leave it on inevitably) and six people are downloading at the mo. Found that no matter what happens with the length of time it takes to download on the Digitaldistractions site, once they’ve downloaded it they just bugger off!

Yes I agree, Demonoid is pretty good. Thanks for your contribution Uphallman.

John Peel’s Festive Fifty 1990
We miss Peelie every single day of the year right – we’re all agreed on that? But there was always something special about the Festive Fifty. John always took great pride in putting the thing together. He would always confide how nervous he was of making a mistake – as if we ever minded. We loved him for it. It’s what made him ‘one of us’ a ‘regular guy’. How many tracks would the Fall/Wedding Present/HMHB, etc have in the chart this year? Would the tracks I voted for make an appearance – yes but always pretty low down! Would John have sniffed out another feeble attempt at vote rigging? Would it all fit comfortably on our newly unwrapped C90’s. I can’t have been the only one shining a torch inside the rapid unwinding cassette praying that I don’t see the leader tape for just a minute or two longer, followed inevitably by the ceremonial panic that was the manic tape flip. Happy days :-)

So here, from 1990, is the Festive Fifty as broadcast on BBC Radio 1. This is partly filling a request from Chris and maybe it’s one Eddie wanted too, I forget off hand (and we WILL sort out those dvd’s I promise – 2007 good for you?).

Further notes and full track listings are contained in the file which may be aquired with one of the following options. Make sure you share around the file freely and have a toast to John and the Ravenscroft family. Oh, and a merry fucking Christmas from me. Foul mouthed bastard.

    I will put the 1990 festive fifty onto Usenet. It will be going into the group.
    alt.binaries.sounds.radio.british I will keep the 4 rars the same size (and maybe make a small par set just in case) :-)

    DrSativa:
    Well done Dr. the more distribution these files get the less chance people need to but them off ebay. And the more people who hopefully get to hear John, maybe for the first time. :)

    Anonymous: (you certainly get around. I see you on all the blogs!)
    Thank you for kind those words. The work is all pleasure to know it’s appreciated :)
