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.
Podcasts and other files should stay up until the end of time. If there is a broken link, please tell me. It is not the intent of this website to steal from anyone. If you wish for a MP3 to be taken down, just ask and it will be done. Thank you.
Soulseek Also, if you have the P2P program Soulseek and wish to grab/share/offer John Peel material with me. I have two accounts, a primary account under "stoecker" and a secondary account under "michstoecker". Right now I probably have about 500 hours of Peel recordings that I'm sharing with everyone. That said, you can not be abusive and try to dl everything.
Film and Video Production.
My old radio station. It's still playing the best music on the airwaves.
Sorry about the lack of shows since October. I hate taking hiatus from the show but my recent job took all my spare time away. I was on the road up in Omaha (a wonderful city by the way) working on a Christmas feature film for next year. It was a blast, but it made me neglect the show. I'll be back after the new year, I promise. I really wanted to do a Xmas special podcast, but that too got canned.
Anyway, its Dec. 22nd. I always remember that date for its the birthday of great friend and its the day Joe Strummer left this good earth.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone. Take care and be safe.
