Steve from Teenage Kicks here! Before treading lightly in the deep waters of this hallowed ground, I just want to say many thanks to Gary for setting me up as an author here, and I hope in the coming months that I won’t do anything to disgrace the reputation it so richly deserves. So enough gab from me, and here’s info regarding Peel’s offspring and their fledgeling recording career.

At time of writing a 58min podcast version, thus described “BBC 6 Music’s new album-length podcast – a dozen new handpicked tunes every week from Tom Robinson’s Introducing shows in the small hours of Sunday and Monday mornings: full length tracks by upcoming artists, direct from their own websites.” can be downloaded from here:

Now get downloading and enjoy the continuation of a great tradition in radio.


Steve runs Teenage Kicks, which is a great source of Peel-related features and files. It’s updated regularly too!

    this is a message for william ravenscroft
    i just received my copy of the olivetti chronicles and read his introduction where he refuses to include articles from gandalf’s garden and international times. he follows this up with the hypocrisy of “he often expressed mild embarassment at some of the things he used o write , but this seems to us to be utterly without foundation” does this men that only william’s “mild embarassment” (sic) counts? what john used to say on the perfumed garden, gandalf’s garden, international times, and the early days of BBC 1 and the late night programs was an inspriration and gave direction to my life
