Another podcast emerges. This one from our cohort @rossofcourse with another eclectic mix of everything Peelie.
Side note: These pods have been curated by just two of us so far, but it is an open project for anybody and everybody. If you want to compile your own John Peel-related pod then you would be made very welcome. Each of us has a different ear when listening and we want to hear what you hear. Contact us via
hereif you have anything or need any assistance, we’ll be glad to help.
Enough with the small talk, on with the latest edition.
Comments from ross:
“This differs to the first pod I did. That one I made a point of cherry-picking a higher ratio of pure Peel moments. This time it is a little more traditional but no less eclectic, as it should be to reflect his unwavering openness. Once again this is taken entirely from ancient radio tapes, or rather my mp3 conversions of those tapes, not records interspersed with off-air dialogue. Whilst – where possible – these are cleaned up a little, and sound absolutely fine to me, this is hardly cd quality. But then, no-one reading this, is likely to be worrying about that. And if some random visitor here is; the whooshing noise you hear is the point passing rapidly over your head.
You will note towards the end that Morrissey’s first solo single is there in it’s entirity. The primary reason I’ve elected to include this as of significant representative interest is that Peel played these songs unheard and his comments are, as such, uninfluenced by previous exposure.
I hope you will enjoy this. More soon.”
