• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • 1999-02-14
  • This programme bears a marked similarity to 11 February 1999 (Radio Mafia), including the same story about Senseless Prayer: however, in that show, it was snowing heavily around Peel Acres, and now there is just a little, like dandruff, and the whole area smells, so JP tells us, like "tooth decay".


  • None


(JP: 'Last week I played you a new record by Echo & The Bunnymen. It's always nice when people who've done stuff in the past that you kind of admired reappear and start doing the sort of thing again. Their reappearance 18 months ago I wasn't that taken with, but, judging from the four tracks that I've been sent as a sampler for the forthcoming LP "What Are You Gonna Do With Your Life?", really the band is back in great form, I'd say.')
(JP: 'I may be old and I may be ugly but I do find some nice records to play you.')
(JP: 'One of the exciting things that happens to you if you have a job like mine is that you're often stopped in the street by complete strangers offering you CDs and cassettes and so forth of their music, and by and large these tend to be faintly disappointing, I have to admit, but last week I was stopped in the street in London by some people called Senseless Prayer. They gave me a demo CD that they'd made, and the first track on it is really good, once it gets going.')
