Radio Flashes was a comedy mixed with music radio series hosted by Vivian Stanshall, Keith Moon and Peel's producer John Walters, that was broadcast in August 1971 on BBC Radio One. The show basically consisted of Stanshall playing records, and linking them with surreal whimsy and all manner of densely prerecorded comic inserts. The series was first repeated on BBC Radio Four Extra in August 2014, with only three episodes, instead of four, broadcast.

The series was broadcast while Peel was away on holiday. Peel's producer John Walters found the experience of trying to keep Stanshall's sprawling and undisciplined imagination under control on the series to be a demanding and frustrating one, but he was also a great admirer of Stanshall's work.
