John Peel Day 2011 - Studio Sessions pt01
Over the years John Peel had some excellent studio sessions. It is well worth picking up the book 'The Peel Sessions'
That book gives a great history of the sessions and details dates recorded and broadcasted as well as details of the Festive 50's etc. A good investment I think.
Pickin' the Blues - John Peel Theme
The Slits - Love and Romance
New Order - Transmission (to celebrate Peel's 40th Anniversary I think?)
The Damned - Fan Club
The Cure - Grinding Halt
The Specials - Stereotypes
Stiff Little Fingers - Law and Order/Barbed Wire Love/Suspect Device Feb 12th 1980
The Wedding Present - Happy Birthday
The Beat - Ranking Full Stop
The Sundays - My Finest Hour
Sonic Youth - My New House (The Fall cover)
Jimi Hendrix - Daytripper
