• John Peel Show
  • BBC Radio One
  • 2001-08-07
  • Two tracks in the show are listener requests from the previous week ('Lullaby of Broadway' and the Big Black track).
  • Skreen from the Cuban Boys gets in touch during the show to announce the current state of play in the poll on their drinkdrinkdrink website, which posed the question, 'who would you most like to go drinking with?'. Peel discovers - "And at number one it's me." This sample was later used on the Cuban Boys' posthumous tribute, 'The Nation Needs You'.

  • (JP: 'I'm very aware that I'm always saying in the course of the week's programmes when I get requests in on emails and so forth, I say 'oh I'll try and sort that out for next week' and I very rarely do, and I'm ashamed of this. But I've managed to sort out a couple this week. For example, Simon Grant sent us an email from Eastbourne saying, 'I'd like you to play a song / track which I remember you playing several years ago, the Lullaby of Broadway, I can still vaguely remember the sound of loads of tap shoes'. Loads is right, there are hundreds if not thousands in this and it is a wonderful record. I know we're not supposed to say this, but I would recommend that if you can do this without offending your neighbours that you listen to this as loudly as possible.')
