Ravenscroft at the Weekend & Archive Peel

• Archive Peel Recordings Online At The Beeb

Glastonbury isn’t the same without John, but then nothing is anymore is it? Anyway, some bright spark at the BBC – Thank You – has riffled the archives to replay several Peel shows from happier days.

Many thanks to Chris for initially drawing my attention to this and to Steve ‘saipanda’ for saving me having to track down the links. Is that the best link to use for you Steve, you are the wikimaster are you not?

No doubt everyone has already checked out the old JP Glastonbury stuff that is still being streamed by the BBC. If not, here’s the links (I think):

24 June 1994 (60 mins), part 1, Madder Rose (60 mins)
24 June 1994 (60 mins) part 2, Dreadzone part 2 (60 mins)
27 June 1995 (120 mins) Ash, Sleeper (120 mins)
29 June 2004 (Belle and Sebastian, PJ Harvey) (120 mins)

Think the 2004 show is available via torrent (in of the 17 set), but as far as I know the others are not generally circulated. If anyone could mp3 these, I for one would really appreciate it – some technical issues at this end.”

If Steve or anyone else is still in need of mp3 links for the above, leave a comment and I shall see to it.

How Peel and Kershaw First Met

Andy Kershaw & John Peel

Just happened upon this charming piece from 1995 over at the Independent: John Peel and Andy Kershaw : How We Met. Here’s the opening paragraph by Emma Cook.

John Peel, 55, was born in Heswell, near Liverpool. After finishing his military service in 1962, he began his career as a disc jockey in America. In 1967 he returned to Britain and joined Radio 1, where he has worked ever since. He lives in Suffolk with his wife Sheila and their four children. Andy Kershaw, 35, was born in Rochdale. After studying politics at Leeds University, he became a presenter for BBC2’s Old Grey Whistle Test in 1984. A year later he joined Radio 1, on which he still hosts a weekly show. He lives in north London with his girlfriend Juliette.

→ I have also added it to John Peel links scrapbook where you can find numerous links to interviews and various newspaper articles relating to John that I’ve collected over a number of years.
