  • Hi Stuart

    I've noticed that file has not appeared on the Mooo directory. I don't know whether it's because it takes time for some files to appear on Mooo or something else?

  • Stuart, I've come across a problem with the above and since you did most the work on it I wondered if you could shed any light.

    At the crossover of tapes a and b there's a note that a few tracks might be missing, and I've got those (4 in fact), so that's fine. Towards the end of tape b, however, my list (Tim's handwritten playlist, usually reliable) departs completely from the tape contents. The last point of commonality is the track by Erectus Monotone, which I see has a note "this track cuts off" - after that the tape has 11 tracks and I have 5 completely different ones.

    It seems to me that the original taper (was it Ken?) may have stopped recording at that point or perhaps later taped over that portion, but I don't have the tapes to check - perhaps you have copies? If so could you have a listen and see if you think there might be a completely different programme from that point on?

    If we have got a mismatch, how on earth will we find a home for this part of the tape? There don't seem to be any giveaways in terms of session tracks or news bulletins to help us...

    • Well spotted. It looks like Ken taped over 24th September 1993, but then forgot the final tape flip so the last 36 minutes or so are from that show. Didn't spot it at the time! It is already on the wiki as I had that show in the SL tapes. So feel free to add your 5 new tracks to the 8th October show

    • Well I don't know how you identified that show so quickly, but well spotted yourself. I'll add the remaining tracks.

  • Hi Stuart, I've just added a note regarding Pixies session #4 at http://peel.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Pixies and am referring it to you as you seem to have done the most editing on the Pixies page and I'm not sure anyone will see what I've added otherwise (not showing in the summary of Recent Wiki Activity, though is showing in the full listing of that). I would be interested in your thoughts on what I've put. Thanks, Chris Bond (Vibracobra23)

  • Hi Stuart, you made a page for this compilation, but I can't find the YouTube file on the page link supplied. Can you help? Thanks

  • I was wondering if you have a copy of the twimc.rar or the individual files for the BBC repeat of Carcass' second Peel Session on March 10th, 1990? The Sharebee link seems to be broken as I continue to receive an error when loading up the page. 

    If you could re-upload it somewhere if you still have it it would be so very much appreciated, thank you!!! :) -Chris

  • Hi Stuart

    You may have noticed that I've started dispensing with the line in these pages, 'Calendar for BFBS shows' etc, following a suggestion that it might be considered unnecessary, and just wondered how you felt about it: I didn't want to go around changing pages you created without consulting you first.

  • Hi Stuart,

    I notice that you've reversed my change in the time of the unavailable portion. Calculating from the timings of the 400 box tapes, it would appear there is 15 minutes outstanding. However, the 400 Box tapes are running slow. The portion of the 400 Box recording not covered by the Derby Box recording is only 8 minutes long. When I added this to the Derby Box 92 minutes, I concluded we are still missing 20 minutes.

    • Oops I tried to reply to the Wikia email message. I hadn't noticed that it was a recent change and was only trying to work out show completion for my spreadsheet of shows, so I will revert the change. Hope you are enjoying tracklisting these 35 year old shows!

  • Ignore aggrieved message from earlier: brainless here created a new page with the wrong date on it, then went to the page you'd made with the RIGHT date and had a meltdown. Sorry Stuart!

  • Hi Weatherman22 I had a message from YouTube user called bonnie43uk, who wrote the following to me: "Hi, I have a few old cassette tapes of John Peel shows tucked away in a box somewhere, you are welcome to have them if they are of any use, .. i no longer have a cassette playerBonnie43uk in sunny Swindon" Unfortunately I don't have a device that convert cassette tapes into mp3's. I've mentioned to Bonnie43uk that there are people who are interested in them. Bonnie as I gathered is not selling them for money, but wants to give it away for free from what I understand.

    • Well I would certainly be up for ripping them as I'm coming to the end of my current projects but if someone else wants the chance to contribute then I'm fine with that too! Stuart

    • I've asked Bonnie43uk whether these are full shows or compilations and what year or years these tapes are from ? I'll wait for bonnie43uk's answers, unless somebody has already messaged bonnie43uk on YouTube.

  • Hi Stuart

    The 16 July 1990 show stops working after 7 minutes. I suspect the file has gone corrupt and also on the Mooo Server, it shows the file having only 11 MB, whereas in a normal file, it would be much more. Anyway I thought I let you know. Hopefully when you upload it again, the file won't be corrupt.

    • Yeah I know. My flatmate at ripping central let his broadband lapse so have been depending on BT WiFi. That doesn't allow big uploads if the owner of the router is using it. So it had to be overnight and it looks like the full file is there now. Thankfully my PC survived the power supply blowing up! Stuart.
