John Peel 1994 Playlists

Well, I don’t expect this message to be greeted with the excitement that heralds the arrival of a batch of newly-digitised tapes, but I’ve just completed typing up the playlists for (virtually) the whole of 1994. It comes in at almost 37,000 words and took far, far longer than I had expected.

You can see the results of my efforts at www.avistic.demon.co.uk

In its heyday the avistic website was updated on a (sort of) weekly basis from Ceefax listings published by the BBC, and getting them on the website was just a matter of a quick cut and paste. Today, however, I’m working from a mixture of ancient PasBs and handwritten lists provided to me some years ago by various listeners and quite apart from the typing, the cross-checking of the entries for consistency was a huge task. There are one or two incomplete entries and I’m sure some mis-spellings have slipped in, so if anyone can supply me with corrections please do and I’ll get them entered up.

Now I’m off to the Wikia to do some linking..

    Hey Lorcan, you’ll remember me, I sent you a 2 song peel tape circa 1994 with hopes that you would be able to identify some music, the girl-sung punky track that went into a noisy crunch with some country strumming to top it off (lyrics about a boyfriend buying a painted silver guitar and joining a band and going off to America with a chorus “He makes me sick cause I quite like him and he doesn’t care…) you had commented that it might be Bleach. well after all these years I still don’t know who the band is. There was another track too, kind of a more sombre Madder Rose that I’ve not been able to identify. Is there anybody who knows where I could get my hands on some of these 1994 broadcasts.
