• Catalogue page for a series of (eventually) several hundred radio tapes recorded by wiki contributor JohnPaines65 between 1980 and the early 2000s, with the focus on the first half of the 1980s.
  • Tapes consist of pause-button recordings of the Peel show and other BBC shows catering to similar interests, especially The Evening Show. Since the recordings are with very few exceptions sequential, it is possible in most cases to identify the source of tracks, which often include Peel material not otherwise available.
  • Each physical tape will be represented by two wiki pages e.g. JLP001 and JLP002. This reflects the numbering system adopted by JLP in 1980 and maintained thereafter.
  • JLP's previous contribution to the world of John Peel was ensuring a pleasing circularity to Peel's 1980s programming with a request played at the end of the 28 December 1989 programme. He rarely employs his middle initial these days, but is including it in the identifier of his tape series for reasons which ought to be obvious.
