The moment you have been waiting a year for. The 2012 Festive 50 countdown.
Yes, we named after it our idol John Peel's yearly countdown. Where John featured specific songs we concentrate on the artists and their year long output. So ours is all about the artists. We are paying tribute by using samples of John from various old broadcasts introducing the placings. This is only part 1 of 2 featuring #50-26.
So make sure you tune in next week to hear part 2 and to see who is #1 for 2012!
Some new material was still being released right through the holiday. Two new tracks (well..older demos but still new to us) from Pulp and Wild Beasts were dropped on Christmas day. Plus we have time for some other tracks that never received airplay. So we open with the brilliant new track from Pulp.
