This podcast series & blog is inspired by the life of John Peel (1939-2004).

John reached millions of people around the world with his 40 plus years of broadcasting that was carried on the BBC, BBC World Service and countless subscribing radio stations the globe over. You could hear Peel everywhere from mainland Europe, India, Africa to the USA and of course all over the British Isles.

You'll be able to listen to everything great I get my hands on, from studio tracks, private live recordings, online only exclusives to forgotten vinyl gems.

The point is to allow people to listen to great music regardless of commercial intent. Peelie was too modest to want a show dedicated to him. It's always about the music. So from Lawrence, KS to everywhere we can possibly reach, let us remember what it's like to play music without boundaries and restrictions.

If you have the time please leave
a comment, good or bad.
And if you find a
song you love, please use
the provided links
to purchase the artist's music.
Always support the music.

Thanks

Michael Stoecker,
Lawrence, KS, USA

George Lucas is a Whore

































Several years ago I was visiting my old girlfriend in Angers, France. There I stumbled upon this gem of a 7". I seriously want to know how much money George Lucas got for the licensing on this. It was made in 1977 for CBS Records and it is the dreadful band Galaxy 42 singing a disco version of the Star Wars theme. It doesn't get any better than this.

Enjoy.

Galaxy 42 - Star Wars Theme (Disco Version) [MP3]

And in case you were wondering, the B-Side was the Dynamite Band w/ "She's Dynamite"
It really stinks.

The PJ Harvey Peel Sessions Here in the states today, PJ Harvey releases a Peel Sessions album (it has been out in the UK for several weeks now). I'm really happy whenever any Peel sessions come to official release, but news of this album feels unfortunate, as it is only one disc and only contains a handful of the sessions. Harvey recorded 10+ sessions for Peelie, why not release them all for Christ's sake? 

But instead of just bitching about it, let's share some of what was left off the album.

On May 20th, 2004, Harvey played Peel Acres and here is the stellar session, none of which made the album.

Enjoy everyone.

PJ Harvey - Peel Acres Session 05/20/04

01. The Letter
02. Uh Huh Her
03. Cat on the Wall

Arthur Lee of Love, <br>March 7, 1945 - August 3, 2006 Very sad news today. The lead singer of one of the greatest bands in rock history has left us. Arthur Lee died in Memphis Thursday. His band Love is considered by many to be an influential catalyst for the West coast sound of the late 1960's. The number of creative people his music influenced is incalculable.

Several of my favorite Love songs are below.

Peace and love to the soul of Arthur Lee.


Love - A House is Not a Motel [1967]
Love - Stephanie Knows Who [1967]
Love - Hey Joe [1966]
