John Peel Day treats

As promised, I have some special stuff for you in the memory of the best DJ of all time.
First up, a session track done by 'bis', obviously dedicated to Peely.
bis - We Love John Peel

Next, as John was a big fan of The Fall, someone had made a compilation mp3 of loads of times he mentioned them in his shows. I took some of them and made a mini Fall-mix track that I'd planned to do some time ago so I could sample JP onto it.
John Peel - Stuff From The Fall (2.43)

Then, as John was also a big fan of African music, I think it's time I included what is the best one I've heard. The only thing I know about it is that it was by UXB and appears to be a techno remix of African music, released around 1997. If anyone knows anything else about this, please let me know.
UXB - African techno

The next one that I made is called "Wrong Speed". All Peel fans know what this refers to and I took it from when he tried to play a track by Road Capelle in 1987.
John Peel - Wrong Speed (0.49)

And finally, we have a compilation of quotes from the great man himself, which I made from searching through about 20 hours of radio shows to make what I think is a great tribute to our musical mentor.

Viva John Peel!

John Peel show 29/12/96 part 1

A rare treat for you today. I found another radio programme that isn't available anywhere on the net. This first part begins with the no.1 song from the 1996 Festive 50 and continues the show before leading onto possibly John's first show of 1997, which features a piece on black music in Britain. This file is 48:47 in length and is 33.5Mb at 96kbps.

You can download the first part here

*edit* I won't post the other half as none of it features indie music.
This is the playlist of part 1:

Kenickie - Come Out 2Nite
Aircut - Visual Attack
Broken Dog - Baby, I'm Lost Without You
The Fags - My Boyfriend Is A Janitor
Jerry McCain - That's What They Want
The Gentle People - World of Love
Midget - Diplomi Man
Midget - Kylie and Jason
XLNT - New Lang Syne

Black musicians in Britain programme
Black Star Liner
Crispy 3

Make sure you tune in on Thursday the 11th. It's John Peel Day and I'll have some special things for you, some of which no-one else in the world has. ;)
