• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • 1996-10-10
  • Start of show: "Hello again pals, it's John Peel's Music On BFBS with the first cold of the season, but you won't catch me complaining. This is..."
  • John was going on the Camden Crawl but stayed at home listening to dance remixes instead.

(JP: 'When I've finished this programme, I've got to go off and do a little TV work: that's the kind of exciting thing that happens to you if you choose a career in showbiz. And what I've got to do, they phoned me up and said, "Look, we'd like to film you like reading some poetry," you know, and I said, "Yeah, I suppose," you know, if you want to do that. I suppose they're just going to put little extracts of poetry read by different people throughout the day, or throughout the night: I have no idea what they're going to do with it at all. They may use it to blackmail me in subsequent years, I just don't know, but they asked me which poem I wanted to choose, they said, "Anything you like, if you didn't do Keats we'd be quite grateful 'cos somebody's got a bit of Keats in, and Blake, and stuff like that," so I chose "Teenage dreams so hard to beat, every time she walks down the street."')
(JP: 'Still get a lump in me throat every time I hear that, you know...The Pig has promised that it'll be played at my funeral: let's hope that isn't too soon, although I must admit with this cold, I feel as though it could come within the next few minutes. Well, next week or so anyway.')
(JP: 'THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DAVID! WE LOVED IT! Wonder who told him that it would be a good idea to shout all of that?...Pre-dating the famous Finnish Shouting Choir by a decade or two, I'd say.')
