    On John Peel's Record Box at number 27 is a single by Dreamland Express called Groovy / U.F.O. who are supposed to be signed to EMI Records. After googling the name, I couldn't find anything about the artist called Dreamland Express or the single, which is surprising when they are supposed to be signed to a major record label like EMI. Does anyone know about this artist?

    John Peel on his shows sometimes had unidentified foreign language speakers before a track was played. The ones I've discovered are:

    19 October 1989: Swahili

    07 February 1990: Russian

    04 July 1992: Punjabi

    28 November 1992: Scottish Gaelic

    I also remembered several shows, where unidentified speakers of Japanese and Dutch were spoken, but I can't remember the dates. Does anyone else know any other foreign languages that they've heard where unidentified speakers speak on Peel's show before a track was played.

    I was reading about Tom Ravenscroft (Peel's son) from an old Telegraph web link below:

    Replace Dad? That would be hateful

    On the 13th and 14th paragraph of the link above, the article mentions this: Peel never expected any of his children to take up the profession. "He certainly didn't give me any tips," says Ravenscroft. "The last time I was on national radio, I got told off for swearing. "Dad was talking about Archie [his grandchild] and asked me what I thought. I replied, 'He's f***ing awesome.' He apologised for how badly he'd brought up his children." Does anyone know which Peel show did the above come from ? I certainly know it was after September 2003, because that was when Archie was born.

    Hi All

    Does anyone know whether the Pixies' Peel Session of 1990 was ever broadcast on BBC Radio One ? If not, why wasn't it broadcast. I had a look at the BBC John Peel website and it mentioned the session was recorded on 11th June 1990, but it didn't mention the date when it was broadcast. I also had a look at Ken Garner's Peel Session book, to see if there was perhaps a live Peel session by the Pixies broadcast on 11th June 1990, but it didn't mention any session from the Pixies. The only session on 11th June 1990 according to the book was from a band called Masasu.

    Rich200 Tapes

    May 12, 2013 by Johnpeel3904

    Hi, this message is probably more towards Weatherman22 than anyone else, but I would like to know whether he knows if Rich200 has the Peel session from the great African kora player called Toumani Diabate, who did a Peel session, I believe broadcast on 2nd November 1989.  I know most tapes so far of Rich200 have come from John Peel's 1989 shows and I'm hoping that Toumani Diabate session is on that, as I would love to hear it. Many thanks in advance.
