Hi, Not sure about the new "Lifelines" listing on the Peel On Radio page. This seems to acho what we already have as Where It's At, further down the page (with a linked page and show details). Think "Where It's At" is how it's listed by Ken Garmer - and from memory is referred to by that name by Peel during at least one of the shows. Could we just stick with the previous listing? Perhaps "Lifelines" was the generic R3 name for the slot, but the Peel series had its own title.
Hi - yes you're right. Actually the Lifelines title was already there and I just put a note to it. Hadn't realised there was a dedicated Where It's At listing/page. From what I understand WIA was within the "Lifelines" programme. Maybe rectify with see Where It's At annotation?
Would love to have heard those programmes btw, especially at the critical time they were recorded. Interesting to note they were repeated exactly one year later in '77 when Peel's view of music was already dramatically changing.
Many thanks for your speedy reply. Sorry, hadn't realised the listing was already there. Where did you get the details for the note?
If they are in fact the same thing, maybe we could just keep the top listing, with the note, as Lifelines (Where It's At) and scrap the one further down the page - guess more accurate to say Peel was the presenter.
Yeah, be great to hear more of the shows, or even just get tracklistings and some Peel comments (if anyone is down at the British Library and they have them there). Certainly an interesting time in music.
Thanks for the reply and link. Yeah, seems like "Where It's At" was the second programme in a two part "Lifelines" slot for "Leisure and Recreation". OK, let's go with the revised top section listing plan. (Maybe we could also add the Genome link to the listing for reference.)
Thanks. Yes - looking through other listings, "Lifelines" seems to be have been a kind of 'umbrella' title which took in several other 'sub-programmes' of which Where It's At was one of several. I'll put the Genome link in.
Yes, the Where It's At programmes are available in the British Libarary. You have to request them to make it available to listen. If other people request for it, I can then go and listen to them as I live in London. I don't want to add the Where It's At requests along with the ones I want to listen to on my email to them, because they would take a long time to upload them. I tend to ask them maximum 6 shows to listen to, otherwise anything more than 6 shows, they tend to delay them. Even now, with the maximum 6 shows, it can take them 2 weeks to upload. Previous years they were quick and efficient in terms of uploading requests within few days. Unfortunately now probably because they're facing cuts and budget constraints, things are very slow for them to deliver my requests.
You've listened The Selecter as a artist for creation. Have you made a start on this? I started writing a page myself about a year ago, then never went back and finished it off. Since I've done much of the work, perhaps this could be the nudge I need to finish it. But if you've made a start then I'll leave you to it!
I saw your reference to a Sheffield page on the Cabaret Voltaire page. You might liek to hang back with that for now, as I know that another esteemed wiki contributor has been working on a page recently so it would be a duplication of effort.
Think Doc is referring to me after our previous communications on the subject - if so, cheers for the "esteemed contribitor", Doc! - but haven't made it too far on the Sheffield front yet, so would be very happy if someone else wants to step up and give it a go.
Am going to be away for a couple of days this weekend, so would be great to check out any new page when I get back and can always add any other things I've come across. Think a major point on this one is that as well as Sheffield music, we also need to mention Hillsborough.
On the music front, there's the Made In Sheffield: The Birth Of Electronic Pop documentary as a starting point (Peel clips on maker's website). And Pulp of course, goes without saying. And don't forget Joe Cocker. On the electronic front, the mighty Warp label must be in there somewhere.
PS Maybe also good to check out other UK cities in the Places Category for examples of the kind of content that might be useful to include.
Friends: in the light of the above I have decided to concentrate on just creating and contributing to pages for certain Sheffield bands which I am familiar with. My knowledge of the city is fairly limited and even less so that of the Hillsborough diaster etc.
Please go ahead honourable colleague! (meanwhile I have created page for Vice Versa , with ABC and Clock DVA to follow..)
Many thanks indeed to MemberD for the above and especially the Vice Versa page, which is excellent to have. I'm certainly of limited knowledge on the Sheffield front, but will try and get a basic page up in te next few days (maybe next weekend, actually), so other people can add to it.
Many thanks indeed for all your addtions to pages and also new pages. Great to have more on the Pop Quiz appearance. On that page, I changed the date style. We don't exactly have any set style, but the date style as you had it (with red links) is basically kept for radio shows (so they show up on the relevant calendar pages).
