- 1976: Where it all began

First of all, I can't believe I've never posted this before. I guess when you become obsessed with something you really can't see the wood for the trees. In this instance, I suppose I just assumed that everyone would have this show, as it was the first one I got hold of and started my yearning to collect every Peel show the man ever broadcast. Let's just call it a slight oversight, shall we!

In short, this is Peel's show from December, 1976, when he unleashed punk on an unsuspecting audience of aging hippies, much to their consternation. It's an absolute belter.

As for me, well, at the moment committing to this blog feels more like an obligation than something I'm enjoying, so I'm going to take a couple of weeks off at least. I'm not calling it quits permanently, but I just don't feel like it at present. There are hundreds of new Peel shows to share with you but they'll just have to wait a while. Thanks to everyone who has visited, especially those who leave comments. They're what sustain me through the dark times.

See you soonish, Adam.
