Hi fans, I hope you had a wonderful Yuletide. It’s good to be back in the thick of things after my self-imposed Christmas exile (and thanks to those kind souls who inquired after my health), and to celebrate that fact, the second instalment in my Peel Sessions Poll. I’m not going into all the boring details of the poll’s origins (which you should all be aware of by now anyway). All I can say is that the variety of music voted for gives the phrase ‘across the board’ a new meaning with this one: virtually every track was a surprise, especially number 40, where I had to substitute the voter’s next choice as he had unwittingly voted for one from Mike Read’s show. Moreover, one band is still conspicuous by its absence…who could it be?
When you’ve finished listening to this, hop over to Adam’s house for what is turning out to be a classic series on 1976. Some delights, some real cheese, and a genial host. What better way to digest the turkey curry?
