Comments
  • Sixth and final show featuring the legendary, long-lost but now found, 1976 Festive Fifty, the first ever.
  • Tracklisting information below kindly provided by Ken Garner, author of The Peel Sessions, via the Peel Mailing List. Many thanks, Ken!
  • "The 1976 Festive Fifty remains something of a holy grail among collectors of Peel shows, and no recordings from any of the programmes have come to light as yet. If you have such a thing, or any old recordings on tape, you are urged to contact the Peel Mailing List, where your arrival will be greeted with much rejoicing." This para is fortunately now out of date, Ken in association with his taper pal John Cavanagh, has now made this long lost treasure available once again.
  • Only a selection of session tracks were played.
