John Peel Top Ten 1981
John Peel's All Time Top Ten 1981.
Click on the image for a Youtube playlist of the songs.
Taken from the very great blog Like Punk Never Happened, which simply uploads editions of Smash Hits from thirty years ago. Simple but giving me hours of browsing pleasure. I had a subscription for years and used to love collecting the magazine in the local newsagent and seeing my surname in the top corner.
At the time there was a lot of crossover between Smash Hits and John Peel. More than one would imagine. Check it out.
Can't wait until it gets to my plea for penpals, which got around two thousand replies. One day we got an actual sack full of post delivered to our house. Wish I had them still. I could scan one every day and run a complementary blog.
