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..

Not one, not two, not three but four John Peel radio programmes have been uploaded today for your enjoyment. That’s 8 fabulous hours of the mighty Peelster – join now and get this fantastic ring binder absolutely free!!!!
All from the week of July 2002 plus a bonus from the 18th June, the week before where our John discusses his time in Barcelona. You know how last time I said I’d match the date of the uploads to the present day? Well it didn’t last beyond that one but coincidentally the first batch I pulled off my set of DVD’s are close‘ish!
There is a minisite at over at Radio 1 concerning the Sonar festival in Barcelona including lo-if video our of John’s expedition.
The John Peel Show – 18th June 2002 (68.4MB)
Included here as the last week before July but where John talks of his time at the Barcelona Sonar Festival. At 8 minutes 13 seconds in is the track What Kinder World by Uplifter which John describes as loving “..to the point of madness” – I agree and confess to having this play on a loop here at domestic empire HQ!
The John Peel Show – 2nd July 2002 (68.4MB)
Features Dj/Rupture Recorded Live At The Sonar Festival In Barcelona.
The John Peel Show – 3rd July 2002 (68.4MB)
The John Peel Show – 4th July 2002 (68.4MB)
Features Nina Nastasia Live at Peel Acres.
Always good to fulfil requests especially when it’s from someone who’s featured on one of John’s shows. Enter Seph at 36 minutes 31 seconds in this edition of the John Peel Wingding from 29th July 2003 – a fine piece of hardcore Joe :) Also features Mos Eisley in session.

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 John Peel Programme 13/04/04
Playlist Link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/johnpeel/tracklistings/peel_archive_shtml.shtml?20040413
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.

No confessional today I’m afraid. I know how much you were enjoying the jaunt into my troubled psyche but you’ll just have to put up with a dusty old copy of the John Peel show for now. Tsk!
2nd July 2003: More Glastonbury highlights in the form of the Flaming Lips and more familiar fun with technology.
