Peel In NZ
Peel In NZI did a little websearching Friday on the faster connextion where I work and found out a little about the New Zealand event Pelly is/was attended this past week.It's connected to both the British Foreign office and to some sort of music industry confab there. I clipped the weblinks and some of the pertinent text below. Some of the sites had a few pictures from the event, just taken Thursday and I have clipped 3 of them and upladed them to the yahoo peel group photos area at>http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/peel/lst?&.dir=/New+Zealand+2002&.src=gr&.view=t&.last=1When I realized that this event was taking place in Auckand, the first thought I had was of the excellent college/alternative station the b95FM - one of the first and best webcasters in the world, and a longtime favorite here, well before BBC got on the web. Mornings here in Atlanta are late overnight there and they play good music all day and even wilder stuff overnights. And sure enough, a check of their site showed that Peel was involved with some sort of b95FM event last night. I listened occasionally throughout the day in case the event was aired or simulcast in some way so I might alert all of you, but either it wasn't, or I missed it, or it happened while I slept. The site claims it will webclip the event later.Lastly, if you really need a JP programming fix, note that the BBCWS half hours roll on over the air on MW and SW and on the web too.. late late tuesday night your time, and midday sunday your time.In GMT: Tuesdays 0405> Sundays 13:05 & 20:05Also the his Radio Mafia show is on the web on alternating Wednesdays at 10PM UK time. Or at least it used to be.anyway here's some of the stuff I found yesterday.tom rhttp://music.britishcouncil.org/events/This page lists past and future events in which the British Council Music Department has actively participated, both as organisors and sponsors.

Peel speaking in New Zealand
British DJ John Peel has been called "the single most influential voice in popular music" and he is heading our way for a three-day media discussion seminar in Auckland, which will run between March 21 and 23
InterMEDIAte will feature some top UK and New Zealand media commentators and specialists, who will be discussing, among other topics, the relationship between media and politics, privacy vs celebrity issues and the changing nature of the media with the advent of the Internet.
Working on 'pirate' station Radio London from the mid 60s, Peel was offered a full time position with the newly launched BBC Radio 1 in 1967, when that station was introduced to replace the recently outlawed (albeit very popular) 'pirate' stations.
Famously open to new musical trends, Peel soon established himself as the "man with his finger on the pulse", encouraging and fostering many struggling bands, with diverse musical backgrounds, through increased airplay and documentary style special broadcasts. These broadcasts, known far and wide as The Peel Sessions, include work by many famous (and now not so famous) bands including The Fall, Jimi Hendrix, The Smiths and The Smashing Pumpkins.
Peel has also been at the forefront of introducing new bands to the popular consciousness, including Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac. His tastes remain eclectic, however, and while promoting mainstream groups, his interests in leftfield performers have led him to champion the likes of Mogwai, Pulp and The White Stripes.Peel also writes for British publications, including national newspapers and has a permanent column in the Radio Times.For more information on the InterMEDIAte seminars, please follow the related link below.>http://www.95bfm.com/events.php?id=28&flash_detect=true95 bFM hosts John Peel95bFM is very proud to present an evening with legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel on Saturday 23 March. His radio shows have been broadcast on numerous stations around the world (including bFM) and dozens of influential international artists have had their music released under the world famous 'John Peel Sessions' name after recording for his show.
Sharing the stage with Mr. Peel will be Hard News guru Russell Brown and former 95bFM Breakfast host Graeme Hill. There will also be performances by two surprise guest artists. It will be an intimate affair at the Classic on Queen Street and will kick off at 7pm.
