  • This was a 2 hour documentary broadcast on Radio 1 in the early hours of Monday 10 October 2005 in the One World slot, celebrating some of the shows Peel made from around the world - some of which have been shared here by Ken Garner in original broadcast form.
  • The tracklisting can be found in the archives of the Radio One website.[1] Note that this is incomplete, as - for example - it omits Schneider TM's "The Light 3000" from the Sonar Festival, broadcast 18 June 2003.
  • There are a couple of small edits for tape flips, but I managed to do these mid-song so as not to lose any Peel links.


  • The date given by Ken Garner for the John Peel In Russia show is 1988, but the commentary mistakenly says it was 1989.
  • Similarly, the previously available recording of Peel in Japan appears to be from a different show, Peel At The World Popular Song Festival In Japan, (broadcast 1986-11-02). Meanwhile, Where It's At, a section of which closes out the show here, is credited to 1984 in Berlin but is the final two of six programmes Peel made for Radio 3, broadcast from 1976-04-23. Peel mentions he saw the Sadistic Mika Band the previous year in concert supporting Roxy Music in London (the tour was in 1975, see Gigography 1970s).
  • Tracklisting below is based on the BBC online listing linked above, with extra details if available.
