• John Peel's Music On BFBS
  • BFBS (Germany)
  • 1995-08-26
  • Start of show: "Hello again brothers and sisters, it's another John Peel's Music On BFBS. This is Dreadzone."
  • JP gets a little choked up with pride when relating the fact that William got good enough grades to go to the university of his choice. "We're all very proud of him."
  • He gets quite worked up about the fact that Wawali Bonane and Mav Cacherel have stopped making music, stating that he would rather have new material by them than anything more by U2.
  • John reveals that Sheila refers to him as her first husband, "just to keep me on my toes."

(JP: 'Last time I saw Julian Cope was at the Glastonbury Festival when he was sitting backstage, semi-naked on a rather cold night, actually, waiting to sing a song live on the was a song in which he managed to make some kind of comparison I never fully understood, and I don't think he did either, to be perfectly honest with you, between Margaret Thatcher and Courtney Love. But even as he sang it, the BBC producers were standing around who had commissioned this fine work, looking distinctly apprehensive.')
(JP: 'Sounding very 1967 on that track.')
(JP: 'Had one of those nasty nose-blowing episodes in the course of that. You know when you get, seems like...I don't want to be disgusting here, I hope you're not eating, but when you get like a little ball of snot that seems to roll around somewhere in the top of your nose like a pea in a referee's whistle, and it just simply won't come out. It's one of those. Mind you, the sense of satisfaction and achievement when you do manage to shake it loose is really quite something, and probably the best thing that'll happen to me today.')
