• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • BFBS (Germany)
  • 1999-10-10
  • Start of show; "This is another John Peel's Music From BFBS, and to start the programme this week, one of several tracks I shall play you in the course of the next couple of hours from the debut LP by Ooberman." [1]
  • JP had introduced Lonnie Donegan at the Queen Elizabeth Hall the week before, prompting a series of Donegan-related anecdotes, including one about his father deliberately annoying him by assuming everything JP played was by "Lollie Dolligan."


  • None


(JP: 'Well, if you've ever been a student, you'll recognise that. I wasn't a student and I recognise it.')
(JP: 'They wished to be known as "an anti-lust" group. What can they have meant by that, I wonder?') [2]
(news - edited out)
(JP: 'My French accent, really, (is) entirely derived from Inspector Clouseau, I'm ashamed to say. Whenever I go to France, I'm far too embarrassed to actually speak French to any of the natives. I think I'm going to, you know, but when it comes right down to it and start speaking back (cod French sentence) I have to, "Sheila, this man is speaking to me."')
(JP: 'I love coming back to Fall records after I've not heard them for a long time because they do sound like new records, in a funny sort of way.')

  • Many thanks to Carsten from Berlin.
  1. Despite this assertion, he plays only two.
  2. Since the group's only studio LP was titled Orgasm, John's bewilderment is understandable.
  3. JP thinks the title must be a terrifically rude word in some language. It is in fact the Dutch word for 'mix.'
