FF 2000. Because you demanded it, a Festive Fifty in it's true, raw state, complete with our John, tape hiss and songs cut off in their prime - yes, dear listener, this one's off a cassette.
A truly classic Fifty though: plenty of Delgados, Hefner, PJ Harvey, etc. The Cuban Boys and Cow Cube - what fun! Funny just how many 'Golden Eras' of Peel there seem to have been when you look back on it though, isn't it ?
Btw, you might like to know that as well as being on the Beeb's own Peel pages, you can find also full FF playlists at http://www.rocklist.net/festive50.htm ,and as they're presented in nice clean lists, all on a single page, they're easier to copy/paste from for compiling those all-important CD labels.

Anyway, here's the gear:

Part 1 (50-43)


Part 2 (42-31)


Part 3 (30-20)


Part 4 (19-10)


Part 5 (9-1)

Thanks muchly. Priceless historic
document ! So much good music.
I never would have dreamed in 1980
that Peelie would end up playing "country-and-western" (now called "Americana"), ha ha .......

Excellent stuff - thanks very much, and keep up the good work!

Have you got any from 84/85/86? (with the Peel left in, preferably!)

Great job on the site, especially your FF2002 .ogg post - awesome. Any chance you could repost the FF2000 here as these links seem to have expired?
Also looking forward to the long awaited FF2003 post
