Ahead of our John Peel club night at the Shacklewell Arms on Fri Nov 20th, here's a compilation of songs from John Peel's Festive Fifty broadcasts over the years. This mix contains songs from the Festive Fiftys for 1980, 1981, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2001, 2002 and 2003. It also features John's introductions to each song.

A year after our one-off night Always Different, Always The Same, we present another evening dedicated to John Peel's fearless, adventurous spirit. Our playlist for the night will consist exclusively of songs that featured in one of the Festive Fifty charts. This can be from any year – dating back to 1976 when the Festive Fifty was a list of Peel listeners’ all-time favourite songs up to the final Festive Fifty to run before John’s death – and from any genre. So expect anything and everything, played in any order, and at whatever speed feels appropriate at the time.
