John Peel Wiki


  • 1975-11-25
  • From a mixtape of J P D12
  • Debut session by Five Hand Reel, who, as Peel had pointed out in his preview at the end of the previous evening's show, included Dick Gaughan.
  • An oldie single by Richard Berry, composer of "Louie Louie".
  • The Tangerine Dream track is played in full - it is the second side of their current LP, says JP.
  • As on the previous evening, the show ends with a novelty record - this time, the Band of the Black Watch playing "Dance of the Cuckoos", the Laurel And Hardy theme. Peel says it's to celebrate the appearance in the charts at no. 21 of L&H’s "On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine"
