Comments
  • "Yes, listeners, you're thrilling to a special request edition of John Peel's Music On BFBS. That was for Bob Purcell in Akrotiri, whereas this is for Arthur from Dirk who hates reggae. Why do people always write in and tell me they hate reggae with some sort of pride? Not quite sure."
  • Exact date uncertain: Peel refers to the Smiths LP as "new" (it came out in February 1985).

  • None

Tracklisting

(JP: 'Goodness me, that used to sound really hard in the days when it first came out. It sounds sort of Gary Numanesque these days.')
(JP: 'Remember them, eh, do you? They used to be very big a few years ago, you know, for younger listeners.')
(JP: 'Well, that's the last from your Beste Radiosendung [1] for the week, that's John Peel's Music On BFBS, of course.')
(JP: 'This is for David in Berlin, who claims not to have heard the Fall's "How I Wrote Elastic Man." I don't believe that for a minute.')
  • Fall: 'How I Wrote "Elastic Man" (7")' (Rough Trade) 24 February 1985 (BFBS)
