  • Hi



    Just getting started on matching up the wonderful work of Peel Wiki with what I've taped and digitised over the years. My 26.12.02 seems to have the edge on yours (four minidisc off-airs) and 25.12.03 might be too. But I'm not entirely sure how to chip in. Very happy to send on Wetransfers to a designated email if you would like to message me privately. 



    All best

    Ian

  • Dear Stuart,
    I'm a French music reporter and I'm writing a story on the Joy Division's "Atmosphere/Dead Souls" single for its 40th anniversary. I've been reading your fantastic wiki for informations about the nights Peel played these tracks and I have a question for you: I would like to know what Peel said on May 20th 1980 to introduce "Atmosphere" and the wiki page for this show says: "File to be created from JLP080 - upload forthcoming". Do you know how I can contact JLP080 to have informations about that show?
    Best,
    Jean-Marie

  • Hi Stuart

    I notice that you have been creating new pages for Soundcloud mixtapes which are no longer available. Since you have been able to document them, is there any possibility that you have them and could make them available again? Many thanks

    • Was just awaiting the first request! Done. Little new content, about 4 minutes on each, and often poor quality. 4 other tapes I downloaded at the time had no new content and of poorer quality so did not document (other than on my sandbox page)

    • Thanks Stuart, great work in searching out those little corners of Peelology (to coin a phrase)!

  • I've noticed the 18 December 2003 (Radio Eins) show was removed from the Radio Eins page. On the Radio Eins tracklisting zip, it's mentioned as a show with tracklistings. Was it not valid as an official show on the Radio Eins wiki page?

    • I think I might know what might have been going on there, an edit conflict.

      I think I was editing the page, but didn't save it for a while. As far as I can see you only added 27th November 2003 at 18:09 on the 12th. Then I must have saved my edit at 18:54 (as I was adding 2002 shows) and that did not have your edit on it. So it looks like I deliberately took out your edit, but I didn't, it just wasn't on my "editing" page when I saved it. Maybe the same happened with the December show?

    • That sounds plausible, because it may have also happened for the December show. I was wondering why it was removed, but after you explained it, I understand why. I think I will create the pages for the 2003 Radio Ein dates, but I let you add it on to the Radio Eins Show Dates And Numbers and the Radio Eins page, so that the incident doesn't happen again.

  • Dodgy comment? The mind boggles! Will have to investigate.

    • He mentions talking to a 15 year old girl. Not sure that's dodgy. If he had said something sexual about a 15 year old girl, then I would understand that's dodgy, but on the audio he hasn't said anything like that. I'm sure people have talked to a 15 year old (be that your own child, a nephew, niece, student if you work in schools, or a relative)

    • It's what he says compared to half a million listeners that is dodgy

  • Hi Stuart,

    Many thanks for all your ongoing contributions to the site. Front page today, 20 Aug, shows a red link in the "On This Day" section, for the show in 1969. Looked at the template page and seems that you made the latest changes:

    https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/Template:August_20

    Any idea if we have a show for that date and it's been put in the wrong place somehow?

    Doesn't seem to be marked as available on your List Of Shows spreadsheet.

      Loading editor
    • It was a show that had been shared as from that date, but turns out it was a non-Peel Night Ride so I had deleted the page soon after creating it, but forgot the template page

    • Many thanks for your reply and for sorting out the template page.

  • Hi Stuart

    Continuing my long slow trawl through Lee's treasure trove, I do not appear to be able to find the above. Could you help please? Thanks in advance. I don't suppose the missing LE382 ever turned up?

    Best wishes

  • Hi Stuart,

    I am slowly going through the Lee tapes and have got to 1997 (way behind you). I cannot seem to find the above in your folder, even though there is a link to it. Could you please help? Thanks

  • Hi Stuart,

    Many thanks indeed for all your ongoing work in these parts.

    Had a go at a fix for the spreadsheet box width problem, on my sandbox page, and may have a solution (switch "width=100%" to "width=700): https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/Steve_W_Sandbox

    At least, it seems to work at the moment on my sandbox page, but was a bit erratic when I tried further adjustments, so I'm a bit wary of just banging it on all the year pages with spreadsheets.

    Thought you might like to give it a shot on the List Of Shows page, which prompted my messing around, to see whether the code is easily transferable. My sandbox is pretty weird due to all kinds of exotic past code attempts messing around with other things, so would be good to make a first try on a single page.

    • OK, think the problem on the others was my original repeated mistake on the style section quote marks. For future reference, this works:

      style width="700" height="600">

      Not:

      style="width: 100%" height="600"

    • I just wish all these guys (Google, Wikia, etc) would stop the constant updates, which often foul up stuff that worked OK before.

  • Thank you for all your great work. Do the original Lee tapes have all of the talking/discussion between the songs, or do you edit that out. In particular, I'm looking for the full unedited broadcast of January 18, 1997  (Lee 323).  If there is a link to the full version, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    • No, these are the tapes as I received them, they had already been copied/edited from the full show, and the original tapes were then reused. There is a chance that there are some tapes at the end of the collection which are the unedited versions but I wouldn't hold out too much hope. Depending on how keen you are, and where you are located, you could request to listen to the show at the British Library in London.

    • Edited highlights with Peel links. More info below:

    • OK. Thanks, I was guessing that they were edited at origination, but I was hopeful. London visit isn't likely anytime soon. I'll keep hoping it turns up someday.
