We all love a poll, don’t we? Oh? Well, I do anyway, and my latest effort was, if you recall, to cull the votes far and wide for a chart of my readers’ favourite Peel Sessions of all time. I gave you all plenty of time, starting as I did back at the beginning of October, and more replied than for my Best Of The Best Of The Best last year. Just.
The results have now been lovingly compiled (well, stuck on a database anyway) and the first fruits of my labours can be downloaded below. Just in case there are any DMCA types out there out to spoil everyone’s fun, the full chart will be printed at the end of the run: so, if you want to know which sessions came in between 50 and 41, I guess you’ll just have to download and put up with my whinings and musings, won’t you?
I’ve taken one track from each session to represent the whole, in case you think this is a track poll (as two voters did), and even at this early stage, the results are fairly surprising. The podcast is my first proper, and it’s a bit rough and ready, so apologies in advance. But the music’s the thing: that and the rich legacy in all things that John left us.
