Links To Peel

Peel was interested in McCulloch's work when he saw his band Echo & The Bunnymen supporting The Fall at the Factory club in Manchester on 20th July 1979. McCulloch's solo material was played frequently by Peel in the 80's and the artist was invited to do a session for his show in 1989, which was repeated in 1990. On Peel's 11 December 1993 show, McCulloch did a Football (Guest Reviewers) match report between Liverpool and Swindon, which ended up as a 2-2 draw.
