John Peel, 18th. January 1982

Another request, this time by Entrailicus at the excellent new Fades in Slowly blog: here's 30 minutes of a Peel show from early '82.

An interesting one historically, this, as Peel recounts the impact Elvis, Little Richard and Captain Beefheart had on him when he first heard them. In fact John plays three tracks in a row to celebrate Beefheart's recent birthday and deadpans, "I'm sure that all of my [Radio 1] colleagues paid him fulsome tribute".
