    • I meant the Steve Lowman tapes that Roger uploaded, split the updating pages like we did with Tim's Dectician ones? I've started L333, so if you fancy doing the even ones? Unless someone else comes in to help!

    • Sure no probs. I start off with L336 and do the even ones from there

  • Hi,



    There's a request for the 7th March 1971 show to be re-upped. I see that you edited the page at some point so wondered if you could stick it on the Mooo if you had the file?

    • I've upped the 2001 show. There are a lot which are not currently available online due to dead torrents. BTW that Edgar Broughton show is just the digital release, not an off-air recording so I've changed the wiki page to show it as unavailable, other than as the digital version.

    • Thanks for the October 2001 reupload. Yes it was Martinja's Edgar Broughton upload. When I first heard of it, I presumed because of Peel's voice it came from a radio, but when listening to it more, I released somebody remastered it because the sound quality was very good and yes you're right it turned out to be from a digital release.

  • Hi, just a quick thank you for finishing off my Au Pairs article. Had to go to an online rehearsal!

  • Leave a few for me! I can't work on them this evening though as on night shift

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 1987 is the thing!

  • 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 for your reply, maybe Show Pages Created? I am sure we all appreciate all the hard work you put in on this wiki, and I only wish I had the time to do things like go up to the British Library!

    • 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.
