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.

BBC4’s John Peel Night

This post concludes all the tv & radio media for John Peel that I’m aware of for this week. If you know of more please let me know.

As much as there is on offer this, and last week, it’s by no means any real substitute and I do genuinely have Sheila and the family in mind, and not just at this time because, and I’m sure we all are of the same opinion here: John was very much a part of our own extended family and I like to think we were also part of his.
