John Peel Wiki


  • 1991-10-13
  • The show now seems to be complete. The tracks from the Dance Edit mixtapes files e-f splice in fairly well with the main guitar edit files a-d. For the dance tracks not back-announced on the main files, the precise order of tracklisting is deduced, and the order of the Para-noi-ya and Public Enemy tracks is reversed from that on the mixtape as that fits with the timings and timechecks.
  • Peel is enthusiastic about the Smashing Pumpkins session, but less pleased about somebody apparently naming him Radio One's #2 new music DJ.
  • PJ Harvey recorded their first session that very day.


  • Smashing Pumpkins, one and only session. Recorded 1991-09-08. No known commercial release.
  • One By One, one and only session (rpt). Recorded 1991-06-18. No known commercial release.
