  • The sixth instalment of the All-Time 2000 Festive Fifty, and the 1998 Peelenium.
  • Peel is feeling under the weather, with the early symptoms of flu. Start of show: "Hello there and welcome to a disease-ridden programme from Peel Acres. Tonight we've got a session from Ui, the Peelenium reaches 1998, All-Time Festive Fifty numbers 25-21, we' ve got some sizzling exclusives, and of course we start our 2000 12 inch singles giveaway competition. But let's start by getting right with the Lord."
  • First, exclusive, play for the New Order song that would make the 2000 Festive Fifty at #26.
  • Newly available file c) now captures for the first time, the intro and the first track as broadcast, and runs through to My Favourite Dress. Finally, file d) is the entire show as broadcast.


  • Ui, one and only session (although Peel seems to be under the impression they did another). Recorded 1999-11-10.No known commercial release.

2000 Festive Fifty (All-Time): Numbers 25-21

(JP: 'Right, it's time to get back to the Festive Fifty. As you know, if you've been listening for the past week or so, we're working our way through the All-Time Festive Fifty five at a time, because I think it's fair to say that it has been fairly predictable, and therefore to have done it all in one or two programmes would have been more than I could have endured, I think, so for purely selfish reasons, I've divided it up into bunches of five, and tonight's five starts now.')
(JP: 'Is it too much to hope that there'll be something new from the Fall before we're very much older?')
(JP: 'I was tempted to play you the Icelandic version of that, which is on the other side of this 7 inch single, but I think you'd probably assume that I was being deliberately wacky if I did that, so I didn't.')
