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.
Thanks to Steve for following my suggestion - hope it's OK with Stuart. Was also thinking could go ahead and start the pages for the other years and add the template box to the Calendar and BFBS pages as well if that seems OK.
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!
Ah, I just replied to your aggrieved message on my phone but I think it then got confused as by the time I pressed the post button, your message had disappeared! I was blaming the wiki for not showing a conflict message as I thought we both must have been tracklisting the page at the same time.
Re my style I just follow the template on NewTracklisting i.e. Artist: Song (single/album/session) Label but add the record label catalogue number and specify whether a single is a 7" or 12" where known.
Thanks for replying Stuart: yeah, we've all got our own way of doing things. I should have checked first to see if anybody had done the track listing before me, as I can't seem to tell the difference between August and September ;-))
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.
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.
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!
Appreciate the work you have done in uploading Rich's Peel shows on this site. I just want to clarify with the Apna Sangeet group. The words "Apna Sangeet" in the Punjabi language means "Our Song". The group consisted of Kulwant Singh Bhamrah (K.S.Bhamrah) and Sardara Singh Gill (S.S.Gill) with back up musicians. Now on the discog site, (http://www.discogs.com/artist/1848412-Apna-Sangeet), each fof the band's songs were credited under K.S. Bhamrah or S.S.Gill or both. Confusingly they were both part of the Apna Sangeet group, but would use their own names to credit themselves. No idea why they chose this method, perhaps it's related to contracts on who would get writer's ownerships. Anyway keep up with the good work.
Yes it made me wonder how I should credit the track on the listing. It's like a Beatles album with tracks by Lennon and McCartney listed under their own names! The album seems to sell for a lot according to Discogs.
I had to overwrite your spelling collection as I was in the middle of a large edit but reinstated it afterwards.
I'm also surprised by that as well. I'm guessing it's a rare album. Anyway I corrected the track's name. It's not "Danda", but in fact "Put Jatan Da". Mind you Peel mispronounced it as "Bhoot Jatan Da".
Thanks for all your SL Tape uploads and my apologies for picky quality control....unfortunately, I've got another slight quibble. I couldn't find the 03 December 1993 file in your Mooo folder...until I realised it was labelled 1993-03-12, not the way you usually do it!
Will there be a chance of an upload of the 08 February 1990 BBC Radio One show on the Mooo Server ? I noticed you did a wiki page on that date and it mentioned "tbc". I presume there must have been more tracks.
normally there is a purple button labelled "reply", or "new/start topic", but it isn't there.
i know there have been some teething problems, but?
That's what I've been complaining about! Try logging in again, it seems to indicate that you are logged in by displaying your name but that is just due to cookies, you actually need to log in properly.
Thinking back, the old Groups did that but it was more obvious as all of the posting options were greyed out until you logged in.
