I started uploading my Gemischt-Tapes 1990. Songs played by John Peel, but without his voice. Some are grouped in genre, some are mixed. Are you interested in more, I have many...
What's on your mind?
Seems to be a few issues related the recent migration to the new system software, including front page layout jumble, end of RSS feeds and gallery problems, plus loss of calendar extension for related pages.
Please let us know below any other issues you come across, so we can try and sort out some kind of fix.
Many thanks for your patience. Hope to have something like normal service back asap.

Hi, does anyone have downloadable copies of this show? It seems I'd have to be actually in the British Library to listen to the available stream. Thanks.
Further to my recent blog post, Wanted Session Artists A-Z, many thanks again for all help in getting pages up for session artists who had three or more sessions but no page yet on the site. Think all the hard work has filled in some big gaps.
On a wider point, there is an automatically generated Wanted Pages page, which lists linked words or terms for which there are no pages up yet (so the links just show up red on other pages). Many of these are for artists who Peel played and did sessions, so obviously great if people can have a go putting up new pages for these if they have time.
Also the case that there are other pages that are wanted but don't fall into the above two types. Would be fantastic, for example, to have pages for all the Peel shows that were ever broadcast, so hugely happy if people can fill in gaps from audio or other sources, including official archives, diaries, whatever. Great to see pages still going up for new audio discoveries - may the attics of the world keep yielding treasures for many years!
Also of course, all kinds of other pages related to Peel are most welcome, including on record labels, linked people, etc - whatever seems relevant.
Finally, many thanks to everyone for all their ongoing help on this site. All your help is much appreciated!
Hi, just thought I'd let everyone know that, although not listed as available, this show is on Mixcloud.
I've been labouring on a 6CD 'Bert Jansch at the BBC' box set (1966-2009) set, for release next year some time. The 'holy grail' of the missing audio is this one:
Sounds of the 70s 2/8/71 and/or 23/8/71
I have none of these 5 songs - some very rare in his repertoire
The Sequence 11/5/73 is also missing in full, and re: Night Ride 18/12/68 - I have only two of the six tracks.
Happily, there are many survivals beyond the remit of Ken Garner's books (in which all three above comprise the BJ listing). But if anyone can supply any of the above... wonderful! :-)
This page is to collated requests for specific shows or sessions, not yet available, noted either on wiki pages, Facebook groups, the Peel Mailing List, or elsewhere.
Depending on usage, this page will be further organised and categorised.
Any outcome, such as newly discovered audio, will be mentioned.
25 February 1968. Page suggests a tape exists but has never been shared.

Beyond the other recorings 1985 through to 1991...
This is all that is available, it seems, and yet there is a note saying that this recording - dated as 7th Nov 1987
IS in fact the show broadcast on July 10th.
I've not yet had a proper chance to investigate this - but believe it - which means that the 7th November 1987
recording doesn't exist.
I hope my explanation here makes sense! Hopefully you/someone can help...
Thanks in advance.
I don't remember if Peel said it in one of his BFBS shows (Eddie Berlin's tapes) or if I read it in one of the pages in this Peel Wiki: Peel (or someone) said (wrote) that Punk/New Wave had split into two sections (fractions?), that it seemed to exist only two alternatives: the "Punk section/fraction" and the "Dance section/fraction".
Can anybody please tell me the exact source (date of the Eddie tape or page in this Wiki)?
Does anyone have copies of Mike Read /Kid Jensen sessions by The Purple Hearts and The Circles. Purple hearts would have been 1979 and the circles 1980 (may).
I have the Hearts peel session but would love to hear their other BBC session.
Hope somebody can help
Desperately seeking this song, its on a torrent however the torrent wont download. Anyone able to help? x
Was wondering about a sensible order to create pages for the "most wanted" session artists.
Thought maybe one way might be to do, in alphabetical order, session artists with no pages yet who did more than one session, suggesting they must have been of more than average interest to Peel himself.
Narrowing down the Sessions (Artists A) page, came up with the following most wanted "A session artist" pages list:
- Mick Abrahams Band: (2 sessions, 1971-72)
- Abs: (2 sessions, 1987-88)
- Acqua Vista: (2 sessions, 2001-02)
- Adverts: (4 sessions, 1977-79)
- Albion Country Band: (5 sessions, 1972-78)
- Alfie: (2 sessions, 2000-01)
- AM60: (2 sessions, 2002)
- Miller Anderson: (2 sessions, 1971-72)
- Dave Angel: (4 sessions, 1996-99)
- Animal Magic: (2 sessions, 1982)
- APB: (2 sessions, 1981-82)
- Brian Auger's Trinity: (3 sessions, 1967-68)
Once these are done, could then move onto missing B session artists, etc. Help with session details easy enough to find and copy over from the BBC Peel site (A artists), although these should be checked against Ken Garner's Peel Sessions book.
I have a recording of the Free concert from July 1970 which was shared on https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/12_July_1970 (until someone decided to remove it). I have now discovered another partial recording of this concert which suggests that the previous version was of the repeat on Wednesday 15th July. I was thinking that rather than creating a duplicate page for the repeat the recording should be shared on the original page but clearly marked as the repeat broadcast. Do people agree or disagree?
could you please reupload these two files? Links to BillfromNorthWales' download page don't work.
a) Blur at Peel Acres 1997-05-05 pt1.mp3
b) Blur at Peel Acres 1997-05-05 pt2.mp3
The file for this date doesn't load for me. It seems to link to Megaupload. Could it be made available?
Is there any way to download the full show file (1) for 1977-08-29? It's on Mediafire, which may be why it's disappeared.
File (c) (the Mooo file) for this show seems to be a dead link. Any chance of re-upping it?
Any availability on this JP session ?
March 9, 1970 BBC Playhouse Theatre, London, ENG (BBC Radio "Top Gear"
"Wicked Messenger", "Devotion", "Pineapple And The Monkey" & "Shake Shudder Shiver". Broadcast: March 28, 1970) Repeated: 6th June 1970
Any help greatly appreciated.
One of my mix tapes (The Peel Tapes Vol.21) had Luna's Indian Summer as being on this show. But I think the show page says there's a handwritten tracklist that presumably doesn't include the Luna track.
I've taken a photo of the page on my notebook I used at the time, which I know is not conclusive proof but the timings might help with placing it (or it could be I recorded it from another show but just didn't credit it - I sometimes recorded Mark Radcliffe's show and so it is possible it came from there).
My system was to record the shows on VHS and then note down the tracks I liked together with the start/end times for ease of editing, and to make sure I faded in and out accurately. I've added the show date retrospectively but everything else is contemporaneous; 40 was the VHS tape no., a line through the track usually meant I'd put it on a cassette, and the wavey line that the recording was done with and the tape could be re-used.
I only wrote down four tracks I liked from that show. The three tracks after Luna do appear on the show page. My timings on the left indicate the Luna track finished at 1:50:11 and the FSA one 2:00:28, so about 10 minutes before. (Note that the timings aren't necessarily from the start of the show).
Does this help at all?
