A friend of Billy’s wanted this word spread:
Dear All I would be grateful if you would do two things for me to mark one John Peel’s passing: As in the spirit of the original Festive Fifty, please send me your top three tracks (singles or LP tracks) in order 1 2 3. Please ensure you send both name of track as well as artist/group Send this email to a bunch of people, asking them to send their top 3 to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight 17th December I will collate the answers and put out a definitive Festive Fifty at www.festivefifty.net on 24th December this year I know this sounds a little…….but my love of music was fuelled by Peelie and having read the Mick Wall book, it brought it home how much he gave us and I would like to give a little back myself. If you think this is bollocks, then please do not reply but do me a favour, send it on as there are plenty of people who will not feel that way. Cheers Geoff
Will have to have a think… The hardest part with these things is remembering an awesome track that wasn’t released in December 2004 if you know what I mean.
