Das ist eine Extra-Sendungen zum Internationalen John Peel Tag in der wir wieder einige alte restaurierte John Peel Sendungen heraus kramen.
Deswegen senden wir John Peel's Perfumed Garden (14. August 1967, Radio London).
== Radio London
This is a remaster of John Peel's final Perfumed Garden show on Radio London, on 14th August 1967. The following day, the new Marine Offences Act took effect, forcing the pirate stations to close down. Peel would join newly-created BBC pop station Radio One shortly afterwards, where he would remain for 37 years until his untimely death last year.
It was the height of the Summer of Love, and Peelie was still sounding like a posh, rather shy young hippy after returning to the UK from his brief radio stint in America. Peel's eclectic choice of music is much in evidence in this special 5½-hour final show, which kicked off at midnight.
This remaster has been put together by Guy Brown at U-SPACES (members.aol.com/VelvetFogg/HTM.../HTML/PEEL.html). Tapes of the show have been upgraded with high-fidelity masters of the songs Peel played, so only the links are in whiny Radio London quality.
This is Revision 3 of the remaster, completed in September of 2005, which restores all of the Peel links that were missing in previous versions, and corrects some running order mistakes. If you have a version of this and want to check if you need to upgrade, the best way is probably to see if you have Simon & Garfunkel's "Sparrow" on disc 4. That's new for this version.
Artwork and sleevenotes are included as Word documents. They're designed to fit in slimline jewelcases (the ones used for CD singles). There's a lot more information about the show, and the reconstruction project, in Guy's excellent sleevenotes.
96 tracks, 128Kbps MP3. Total time 5 hours 38 minutes approx.
Incidentally, Peelie's very first Radio One show, which would be his next radio show after this one, will be broadcast soon on BBC 6 Music as part of "John Peel Day":
2005 rief die BBC den 13. Oktober 2005 zum ersten internationalen „John-Peel-Day“ aus und forderte seine Fans in aller Welt auf, Veranstaltungen in seinem Gedenken zu organisieren. Dieser Tag soll von nun an jeden zweiten Donnerstag im Oktober gefeiert werden, um an Peels letzte Sendung am 14. Oktober 2004 zu erinnern.
