old peel shows

Ah, link of the year so far courtesy of Pete Ashton's linklog - he's spotted that "there is, somewhat unexpectedly, a whole arena of folk sharing mp3s of old John Peel radio shows", which is a lovely idea. I had it vaguely in mind that I might have some old cassettes of his programmes lying around somewhere which I ought to rescue and copy, but I never found any (or didn't look hard enough, perhaps). Far easier, then, to download some of the shows available here, on Teenage Kicks 3000, and remind myself how good his programmes were.

Thanks to the ever reliable Pete for the link. Pete's blog, can I just say, is pretty unambiguously the best thing going on the web right now. Take a look - here.

I like Pete's blog too - not sure about it being the best blog going, but there's always something interesting there.

Yup. If you want a blog you can read daily Pete's is the best - there are always new links, interesting posts or new podcasts. I should try to add some value like that myself. I actually had a go at putting together a podcast (ie online radio show) the other week but I need to get some webspace sorted out so I can put it up...
