I see you've started working backwards from the last show, I wonder where we will meet! Anyway I spent some time collating the tracklistings into a text file and using a global search/replace (many of) to get them more into a wiki format. It still needs a little editing for each show but will hopefully save some time.
Great job Stuart. Somebody I notice has done the 18 December 2003 (Radio Eins) wiki, but it had an interview. I added the tracklisting on that page for Peel's show and mentioned that the audio contains the interview only. I think Peel's show came immediately after the interview.
Hi, I have taken the liberty of transplanting the extra information you provided about the Fast Show to the page I created for it some time ago, as it seemed more relevant there than on the Higsons page (where their connection is already mentioned). Hope this is OK.
I reverted the Tyree track at the start of LE028 to Acid Over, Shazam and the timing agree, and it's not the same track as later in that tape which is T.J.G.P. . It begs the question, which show did it come from, as you've managed to fully tracklist every show up to mid Feb so it must be a random track from 20th or 22nd Feb.
Actually you are right. It's either from a different show or a possibility that Peel mentioned the wrong title. I didn't shazam it at that time, when listening to it at the British Library because I was just relying on what Peel said.
Further to my comments on the talk page, you claim to have discovered the PG file when it was somebody from Azanorak who shared it and I who stayed up until 2 a.m. editing a 1-hour file down to preserve Peel's material. Just saying.
I agree, when I create a page, I put it under the Shows Discovered section. I think maybe a new title would be more appropriate to replace the Shows Discovered title. Perhaps something like Shows Wikified. I'll have to think of some title
Thanks, I've changed it to Show Pages Created, which is a better title. Talking about the British Library, yes I'm lucky I don't live too far away from it and thankfully it's free to listen to John Peel or any other audio shows there. I tend to go there once or twice a month, but it does take nearly a whole day to listen to the shows and then wikify them, so perhaps it's a labour of love that I'm motivated to do it and also to listen to "new" music that I missed out in the 80's.
Thanks for the help in my sandbox with the Wilshaw tapes' unknown tracks. It had been quick run through the files when I was on the train, but I don't think I could have identified them all anyway. Shazaming with headphones on a noisy train doesn't work too well... I've only wikified the ones which have brought something new/improved to the table.
Incidentally I see that Colin Harper has posted quite a lot of old extracts of old sessions/shows from the late 60s/70s on his Youtube channel other than the Stefan Grossman and Blodwyn Pig shows that you have added to the site. Do you plan to go through these, and if so, would you like any help? I assume that they must be off-air recordings, certainly some are, but not checked most of the others.
No problems. I was lucky to identify some of the unknowns, because I actually heard these songs before, although I suspect Shazam wouldn't have identified them. The only one I couldn't identify, which Shazam failed was the unusual Shadows/Adam And The Ants/Iggy Pop style combo "another neat idea" instrumental, which still remains unknown. Perhaps I'll go to the British Library soon and listen to that show, which has that unknown unusual Shadows/Adam And The Ants/Iggy Pop style combo "another neat idea" instrumental. I got the unknown Welsh language punk tune from help on Twitter, where one of the users identified the U Thant track, after I tweeted help in identifying a Welsh language punk tune. It took I guess 5-10 minutes for someone to identify it. First time I used Twitter to do that. And I was surprised how quickly people there helped with identifying the tune. A good tool for future unknowns in the future, although I have not tested it for the unknown unusual Shadows/Adam And The Ants/Iggy Pop style combo "another neat idea".
I have no problems if you want to wikify any potential John Peel's material from Colin Harper's YouTube channel. However, I can't find anymore JP's material from his channel, which hasn't been wikified since I wikified Stefan Grossman's concert of 1971 and a bit of Blodwyn Pig's material on Peel's show from 1970.
I wondered whether Colin Harper has uploaded those on Sugarmegs and Soundcloud. Talking about uploads, I've found a few audio files of Peel's shows that have not been available until now. I've added the links to them. If you go to Recent Activity on the Peel Wiki site, you would see the ones that I've added.
Thanks for the concern. I’m currently in India on holiday well away from the conflict that has been in the news recently and haven’t been much on the internet as WiFi in the country is not that great. I should be back in the U.K. in early March. I got a lot of catching up in terms of new audio to hear from the mooo server when I come back. And I look forward to cooler climates when I come back, as the climate where I’m staying is really getting humid and stuffy, which I’m not a great fan of.
Thanks, should be back in the U.K. next week, although I bet when I come back to London, it would be raining like a waterfall. But even if it does, it would a nice change from the heatwave that I’m in India at the moment. Also looking forward to hear new audios of Peel shows, once I’m back, which I’m not able to listen here.
Hi there, do you think that the Pixies track might have been Vamos instead of Isla De Encanta? That's what is on the Happy Otter mixtape which otherwise surrounds other tracks from that show, and it's also from their album from a couple of years previously making it unlikely he was going through the album tracks on other dates.
I think you might be right, because when I heard the Pixies sang in Spanish at the beginning of the tune, I presumed it was Isla De Encanta, I didn't check it with Peel at the end of the song. However, I didn't realise the Pixies also had another Spanish title called Vamos. I think the Vamos verdict seems to have the stronger evidence.
