Comments
  • First of four shows featuring the long-lost 1977 Festive Fifty (actually Festive 61, with tracks chosen by Peel rather than listeners).
  • Peel in fact excludes #61 from his chart of the year. Before playing his #1 on 27 December 1977, he says: “When we started all of this last Thursday we played you the Sex Pistols’ ‘God Save The Queen’ and suggested then that it had been removed really from consideration as part of my top 60 and placed in some sort of Hall Of Fame as the most important 'sniggle' of the year."
  • The only recordings of this show currently available are a snippet of #51 of Peel's rundown and the Thin Lizzy concert - many thanks to Bill for these! If you have any further sections, please contact the Peel Mailing List, who will greet you with open arms.
  • Information on the show courtesy of Ken Garner, who first published details of the 1977 Festive Fifty in The Peel Sessions. Many thanks, Ken!
