Links To Peel
Peel played their only single, No Time Is Good Time, on his 27 May 1980 show, where he played A-Z of independent releases, selected from the backlog of unplayed records. The alphabetical rundown ended at N and Peel apologised at the end to Bill Nelson, whose record would have been the next one played.
