Alphabet Beats #105: P is for....The Peel Sessions

P is for....


Back when I was a youngster one of the highlights of listening to John Peel was the Sessions. They were always a great way to hear new bands or to hear your favourite bands performing new songs. With over 4,000 Sessions recorded in his time at Radio One it's a bit tough to choose my favourites so here's a mere sprinkling and in no particular order at all. Click on the links to enjoy the music.
