• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • 1997-04-24
  • Start of show: "Hello again dearly beloved, this is another John Peel's Music On BFBS, and a good rowdy Liverpool start from..."
  • After a play of a Red Rat track, John discovers he has visited the BFBS studios (to do a session for somebody else's programme).
  • Producer Denis is hit on the head by a fan: "if it's the kiss of life, Denis, I'm afraid it's all over."


  • None


(JP: 'Strange thing happened to me on the way to the studio. Walking along from the west end of London, walking across the road, and a car that had stopped at the traffic light, window rolled down, sort of vaguely Liverpool voice shouting out of it, "Hey John Peel! I've got a bone to pick with you!," and you think, I know what this is. It's some loser bass player from a Liverpool blues band of 1972, something like that, "I sent you a demo tape and you never wrote back. You could've written back. Who do you think you are?" So the voice was shouting away, and I was thinking, how do I get away from this. I had another look at the bloke in the car, there was a blonde woman sitting in the passenger seat: Paul McCartney was who it was! Being amiable, not being hostile at all, as it turned out. He said, "Any more of this and I'll send you back to Liverpool!", and I have to say, frankly Paul, I wouldn't mind that to be perfectly honest with you. Just letting you know that I'm recognised by the stars.')
