Peel nominated their song, Does Your Heart Go Boom? as one of his Peelenium for 1997. In an interview with God Is In The TV fanzine in November 2018, Helen Love described her memories of Peel, who championed the band:

"Yes he was, although Mark Radcliffe was the first and still is, God bless him. Peel came on board when Girl About Town came out. We had 3 top ten festive fifties on his show, although we only recorded one session. We were supposed to make a tv show with him,where he went around the country meeting his fav bands, but the old label messed it up, although I’m quite glad now, it’s not all its cracked up to be meeting your heroes, although I’m sure he would have been great. [1]

After Peel's death, the band paid tribute to the DJ in 2009 by releasing the single, John Peel's Roadshow.
