"My Old Peel Tapes ... Again!" (Pt. 9)

Good morning friends,

another one of those old Peel tapes for you, because I know at least a few of you are at least mildly interested in those things.

I don't have the time to write all too much nonsense this morning, because I have to help cleaning the village centre for the upcoming Schützenfest. Now some of you might wonder what this might possibly be: at a Schützenfest, contestants compete based on their shooting abilities, for example by shooting at a wooden representation of an eagle. The winner of the competition becomes the 'Schützenkönig' ("king of marksmen") until the next year's competition. Nice, nice, nice, but basically it means nothing else than drinking heavily for four days in a row.

So, whilst I will be drunk and you probably will be enjoying your well deserved holidays, here's something neat to listen to, from 1985 again. Next time I must remember to offer something more updated, but today it's 1985 again ... dunno why I am such a sucker for this year. Some great songs are being featured, perhaps that's why:

As usual you can choose from each tune listed separately (here!) or all the songs combined in one mix (here!). Whichever one you go for: enjoy!

Take good care and let me know whether it met with your approval, right?

I know what you mean, mate. Cleaning the town for the big parade! And I know how it works from my former Cologne days. It was the highlight in Bergischen Land. Btw. nearly 40 years ago I was the king of marksmen in my hometown.
Happy days Dirk
