The John Peel Programme 13th April 2004

Alrighty then, I’ve thought of a slightly different way of doing things (until, perhaps I become bored with the idea). Instead of choosing programmes at random I’m going to put up shows that mirror the date they were originally broadcast. So jumping to 2004 we have The John Peel Wingding from the 13th April. Good eh? No, well ok it’s as lame as any regular radio ‘feature’ but it’ll do for now. An idea is an idea no matter how lame it is and they can’t take that away from me, “No, no they can’t take that away from me”. Oh if only you were here to hear me sing that line – heavenly!

Usual download drill. Click on the the new PeelPal corporate spoof-ad (over there on the left somewhere) for the following:

The programme feaures Frank Sinatra as the Pig’s big 78 and coincidentally it was a Sinatra song I was singing to you a moment ago. Synergy I tell you. And you think I just throw these things together at the last minute eh? Hmmm…

Sometimes I include the playlist. Sometimes I point to the Radio 1 database as I have been with these last few, but this one is all over the place so I’ve corrected and pasted it below. Have the other playlists been like this? All the tracks are there (with one or two over) but not necessarily in the right order – as Eric Morecambe would no doubt have observed.

Also is it me or does john sound somewhat tense here? It’s subtle but regular listeners might notice the difference? He certainly seems on top of things and gives a good impression of being relaxed but to me it sounds like he’s feeling the strain of ‘keeping up’. Easy to be wise in hindsight of course but listening to this did make me feel a litte sad, paternal even – especially at the point of his remarks about blood pressure. Perhaps it’s just me. Still a good programme for all that.
