Our friend Keeping It Peel MCR (Twitter: @KeepItPeelMCR) is staging another John Peel-related night, this time the playlist will be from the Festive 50’s…
“Festive Fifty ? In March ?!” The name of this chart was always a misnomer because despite the name the fan voted compilation rarely featured a seasonal song. Peelie did say that he wanted to find a better name but never did. Since it was a “best of” chart broadcast at the end of the year it seemed only logical to leave it with that name.
And now in Manchester this coming March, Keeping It Peel MCR will plunder this extensive list and play a selection of the best tunes.
You can grab an advanced ticket from Skiddle for only £3.00.
You can pay on the door on the night. That will be 4 quid or a fiver after midnight.
Everything will start at 1pm and will go on until 3.
I’ve created a YouTube playlist to accompany this post, to get you in the mood. This one like the previous was inspired by Keeping It Peel MCR and again featured bands that were played by Peel on his show. Many of them also featuring on the Festive Fifty:
