More than a generation, in fact, and gathered together on one website. I can find no evidence that this has been posted here before – if it has, I apologize.
As background for those who don’t know, the late, great John Peel was a BBC DJ who dedicated his life to promoting new music. Discovering Peel was a rite of passage in the UK, part of the process of transitioning to young adulthood. Peel’s radio shows would feature specially recorded sessions, very often from artists who were (at the time) new and unrecorded.
-has gathered together YouTube links to about a thousand of these sessions (all audio only). That Rabbit Hole Warning is for real. The majority of the artists are British.
Now, here’s another thing: the collection is a magnificent effort, but it’s far from complete. However, YouTube’s algorithms help out here. When you click on a link on the website, it opens a screen and autoplays a video (audio only) in some way I don’t understand; but if you click on the YouTube logo in the bottom right of this screen, it will open the video in YouTube proper. There are two advantages to this: first, in YouTube the text below the video includes info like a track listing; and second, YouTube’s algorithms can locate missing sessions. (Example: if I click on Buzzcocks 1978, YouTube also finds for me an unlisted 1977 session).
With that: happy researching. Enjoy!
