  • Sat (Sept 1969 - Sept 1971)
  • Wed (Oct 1971 - Dec 1971)

  • Mon and Thur (Jan 1975 - Sept 1975)

For details of broadcast times, see the schedule section of the Top Gear page.

During the Top Gear years, Peel also presented Night Ride (1968-9), the show that became In Concert (1970-1), Friday Night Is Boogie Night (Jan - Sept 1972) and Rock Week (Jan - Sept 1975), as well as a programme on Radio Luxembourg (1971-2).
