This edition came into being because one of the perennial Peel favourites will be releasing a new album very soon.
To celebrate this fact I’ve asked someone to select his favourite tracks as played by John Peel on his shows.
So now we give you…
This is from a series of shows that John Peel did in the early/mid-90’s. They were special edition shows, something like the ones he recorded for BFBS radio. But the audience for these was an American one.
The late, legendary British DJ John Peel recorded a series of half-hour radio programmes in the US back in the early ’90s. These were put on CD, two shows per disc, and distributed to the various stations – mostly in colleges…
… As with John’s BBC radio shows, the songs cover a wide range of genres- noisy British indie (perennial Peel faves The Fall), Czech ambient techno (for example) as well as reggae, African folk music and more. John’s announcements are included before and after each track.
These CD’s as it says were given to radio stations and were not commercially for sale. But – a few of them can be found via the Amazon USA site.
This pod is two of those broadcast (each programme was 30 minutes) and is numbered 21 & 22.
02 – Guided By Voices – Sot
03 – Cords – Second Skin
04 – Void – Section
05 – Easter – Found Things
06 – Terror Fabulous – Yu Woulda Bawl
07 – Pushkins – Slope
08 – Stereolab – Jenny Ondioline
09 – Syran Mbenza – Icha

11 – Bivouac – The Bell Foundry
12 – Aphex Twin – The Caustic Window

Yes you did read that right, Leonard Nimoy.
I have to say that Peelie is on top form in this broadcast. This is a very, very recommended listen.
You can find more details/tracklistings for all the Peel Out In The States show on the Peel Wikia.

Another (sort of) podcast. Two in fact. These are two archival interviews with John Peel in which he chooses his favourite songs at that time…
It’s the summer and yes, we are slacking off too.
In the meantime until another pod arrives, here are some broadcasts via 6Music of John Peel at Glastonbury…
Yes another podcast already. We don’t hang about here…
