Comments
  • An unprecedented five-hour marathon show, which lasted from 8 p.m. Boxing Day to 1 a.m. on the morning of December 27, 2002.
  • John elects to play the 2002 Festive Fifty in blocks of ten, interspersed with records of his own choosing, one of which he teases the listeners with by hinting that it may have made the chart. (The record he refers to is ballboy's 'All The Records On The Radio Are Shite'.)
  • JP conducts the whole show on his own from Peel Acres: his family are conspicuous by their absence.
  • Following the number 50 track, John comments: 'If nothing else, the Festive Fifty reminds you of what great records have been released during the year.' He then apologises that, due to suspected vote-rigging, the Dawn Parade have been the great losers in the chart, since most of their eligible tracks were excluded.
  • Peel cannot remember ever having played the Interpol track.
  • His sign-off, 'I'm off to bed to continue listening to Radio One, of course' sounds unsurprisingly sarcastic.

Sessions

  • None.
