  • The 2000 Peelenium (added as a bonus to end the series, even though the year was less than one month old) and part eight of the All-Time 2000 Festive Fifty.


  • Man...Or Astroman?, #5 (repeat). Recorded 1999-06-27. No known commercial release. 'Oh Cha Cha Cha And Once Again Ladies & Gentlemen I'm John Peel And While Only A Minor Political Activist I'd Like To Say That Man Or Astroman Is Indeed My Favourite Band Even Moreso Than The Fall' not TX on this show for reasons stated below.


  • (Some music is followed by silence and then the emergency tape plays)
  • Hanin Elias: 'In Flames (CD-In Flames)' (Digital Hardcore Recordings)
(JP: 'I think, as I understand it, you're with us now, having missed the first twelve or thirteen minutes of the programme, for which I apologise. It was not my fault. Let me emphasise that, because people always say, "Old Peelie's such an amusing bloke, he's always making mistakes." It wasn't me who made the mistake. Anyway, what you missed was a track from Spectre which I'll put in next week, one from Teen Idols, and the first from Man Or Astroman, who are in session, and a rather fine record from Tony Rebel, and possibly the first part of that track by Hanin Elias, but hopefully you'll be with us for the rest of the programme.')
(JP: 'Not much point having a paradise if you're going to have to reorder it according to Hollywood standards, I guess.')

  2. Cinerama: 'Manhattan (CD single)' (Scopitones)

2000 Festive Fifty (All-Time): Numbers 15-11

(JP: 'Right, it's time for us to engage with the All-Time Festive Fifty, and I haven't got time to go through what we've had up until now. Obviously, there will be lists available at some stage in some form or other.')
(JP: 'Only yesterday, we got a phone call from our William, who's in the Southeast of Asia at the moment, and he is actually at this very precise moment on holiday in Cambodia, which brings us rather spookily to number 14.')
(JP: 'Majestic. There never was a greater, not even Mark E. Smith.')
