27) "The Mid-Morning Recording" John Peel and Shelia - 'The Pig's Big 78's - A Beginner's Guide'.
During the end of the last century, the BBC asked John Peel to pick three songs from every year of the 20th century to play on his show. The BBC called this segment "Peelenium", a title that John hated. Apparently though, John had a ton of fun finding these old recordings, and the young listeners of his program surprisingly loved hearing them on the show. When the "Peelenium" project was finished, he continued to play a 78 RPM recording on every late night program. This became the aptly titled segment "The Big Pig's 78". Peel and his wife Shelia, (nicknamed by John, "The Pig"), hand picked these little gems, and boy aren't we lucky. These recordings are priceless and may never be found anywhere else. Some of these songs are funny, some are totally bizarre, some you can swing to, and some of them even rock! When John Peel died in October of 2004, the only thing missing from this collection was the booklet notes. Luckily Peely's wife, Shelia "The Pig" Ravenscroft, agreed to complete the project and give insight on why these tracks were picked. This collection even features the first record Peel ever bought as a teenager, "Blue Tango" by Ray Martin & His Orchestra. There is even a track by Jack White & His Band from 1939....obviously not The White Stripes. It is included here because John loved Jack and Meg's band so much. He had over twenty 7" singles from The White Stripes in his personal record box when he passed away. In pure John Peel style, this may be the first time so many 78 RPM recordings have been played at once on this station. I think he is smiling somewhere knowing that someone is playing this entire collection on the radio. Would the BBC play it all at once???? Most likely not. Thanks John for all the are always with us, every program we do.
Michael - MFL
