John Peel All Times Festive 50 on BBC Radio 1 – Millennium

Here’s my naughty list for 2011

It’s really just a cheat sheet for the John Peel all times Festive 50

Each year John Peel would play his top 50 songs for that year around the Christmas holidays on his BBC Radio 1 show

In 2000 AD, for the Millennium, JP played his top 50 festive songs 50 for all times; a timeless playlist

John Peel sadly passed away in 2004 from a heart attack leaving behind a legendary music legacy & high bar in alternative music discrimination

Margrave of the Marshes – a book about John Peel by John Peel & Sheila Peel available @att Barnes & Noble

I’ve found links for most of the songs on his Millennium Festive 50 countdown on Apple iTunes
