#KeepingItPeel Podcast – Peel On Record Part 1


After a very long break, normal service has resumed and the #keepingitpeel podcasts are back…

This pod has a theme and that theme is Peel On Record.

I’m sure all of you are familiar with the Peel Wikia, it is the best place on the web bar none. I spend many hours browsing through the archive and listening again to old shows.

Whilst wandering through I found the Peel On Record section and was amazed at how many artists had cited Peel on one of their recordings.

There are many artists and tracks here I’m sure you’ve never heard. In fact there were so many songs that I’ve decided to make this a two-part podcast. The next one will be online very soon, but for now:

Peel On Record – Part 1:


  1. Dalek Beach Party – John Peel (CDR Demo)
  2. Virginia Doesn’t – Peely (Peel Session)
  3. Lead singer was Kevin Eldon

  4. Bleach – Jingle (Peel Session)

    1. Cheers Simon.
      Am currently working on a Peel Acres podcast (per your suggestion) but it’s taking longer than I expected so banged this out in the meantime.
