  • Best sessions of the year were broadcast in the first part of the show, and the combined numbers 45 to 41 of the yearly and all-time Festive Fifties in the second. Until recently, only the chart rundown was available. However from early February 2010, a new recording became available, including edited highlights of the session tracks and records portion of the show.

Tracklisting

Best sessions of the year and the odd record

1982 Festive Fifty: Numbers 45-41 (File 2 plays the rest of the Festive Fifty)

(JP: 'I'd like to be an expert on icons, curiously enough. I think they're very beautiful things.') [1]
  • 45 (FF): Simple Minds, 'Glittering Prize (LP-New Gold Dream 81-82-83-84)' (Virgin) 
  • 44 (AT): Sex Pistols, 'Pretty Vacant (LP-Never Mind The Bollocks)' (Virgin)
(JP: 'Extraordinary, the number of bands who think that's what they're doing in 1982, and of course they're not by a mile.')
(JP (referring to the next track): 'One of the great records of all time.')
  • 43 (AT): Specials, 'Ghost Town (12 inch)' (2-Tone)
(JP: 'Speaking of ghost towns, tomorrow night the John Peel Roadshow is in Warrington with Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Thought you'd want to know that.')
  • 43 (FF): Weekend, 'View From Her Room (7 inch)' (Rough Trade)
(JP: 'That's one of two records in the 1982 Festive Fifty that I've never played on the radio before. Starting to think for yourselves, eh? We'll stamp that out.')
(JP: 'Taut, young, expectant muscles, I've always imagined.')
'Rather surprised to see this next one at 42 in our 1982 chart. No reason, I mean, it's a good record and everything, but I didn't realise it was that popular.')
  • 42 (FF): Chameleons, 'In Shreds (7 inch-double A side with Less Than Human)' (Epic)
  • 41 (AT): Joy Division, 'She's Lost Control (LP-Unknown Pleasures)' (Factory)
(JP: 'Will we hear from them again in the Festive Fifty? Well, I know and you don't. Bet you can guess, though.')
  • 41 (FF): Passage, 'XOYO (LP-Degenerates)' (Cherry Red)
