Thanks. I've tried to follow the patterns used on other artist pages. I also do my own Wiki dedicated to The Human League so am fairly familiar with how to create/edit/link etc, although appreciate any help.
I was reading through an old diary and I'd mentioned that I'd stayed up late that night because I knew (somehow) a Human League track would be played. I actually wrote down in came on about 11.30 (PM) ! Was he playing soem of his favourites arund that time or something?
Yeah I did occasionally make note of such important events (!) and I do have various recordings although not full shows. Like I know he also played the B side of the 'Boys and Girls' single ( 16 February 1981 ) but I don't know the date. I thought it was the same night but it doesn't come up on your wiki for that show.
Just to say many thanks for McLusky and Santo & Johnny pages. Could do with getting back to a few slightly less obvious things myself.
Thing about going through the most wanted pages is getting out of the way ones that seem essential for any self-respecting Peel site. On the other hand, all kinds of artists posted under multiple name variations that may actually have more links in total - getting Public Image together at the moment and Elvis C seems like another. Plus, House Of Love definitely need doing (name variation of capital O or not on the second word).
Also many thanks for ongoing footy and wrong speed moments. This is what we need!
It's a pleasure to do these artists pages. I stumbled across Santo & Johnny when I was doing my latest rips and they struck me as 'typical' Peel act, worthy of a page. I was actually inspired to do their write-up by reading the excellent one for Stanley Winston. Listening to him playing their respective records over the decades is delightful; despite the years in between plays, the emotional connection with Peel still resonates. I might investigate some more of the soul acts soon. Joe Tex would be a good target.
I was thinking of going through the Record Box myself to see if any of his much-loved singles copped plays every 2 or 3 years. I think the next artist I'll look at is Amsterdam: not many plays to document, but each time he played it he almost burst into tears.

Yep! I don't have a copy of that programme, otherwise I would have transcribed Jobson's exact quotations. Next up... another artist page that was close to Peel's heart.

Hi Doc, apologies for bothering you: I'm updating the SL Tapes as far as possible and I see that several of your rips include Kershaw shows that are either not on the Mooo or were not circulated. I dimly remember a post to the group from you about this, but forget what was said. What started me off was trying to date the AK show on L096 and then realising I didn't have it. Could you help?
Hi Steve. I have shared all the Andy Kershaw shows, as far as I know, in the 'kershaw' folder under the 'SL_Tapes' directory of my mooo space. Side b of L096 was the start of the AK show from 2 Feb 1992 (Real World Recording Week documentary). I ended up with all the segments for the show in my batch of tapes so pasted them all together into one file. I have all the tape details on a spreadsheet. An early version of the document for batch one has been up on my webspace for a while. I'll update it tonight if I get the chance, as I was able to confirm some more of the details after I originally uploaded it to this link: []
