great to see an innocent R3 schedule listing of our arcane tastes has made Pseuds Corner. Max tells me that it was one of Peel's unfulfilled ambitions to make it in.

11.00 Late Junction. Max Reinhardt presents a mix tape by progressive electronica artist Gazelle Twin. Plus Egyptian psychedelia by the Dwarfs of East Agouza and Balkan drone music by Cimbalomduo.

Not unfulfilled - John Peel wiki for 2nd August, 1979 confirms :-

- Proudly reads his latest entry in Private Eye's Pseuds Corner, his third in around ten years: ""An early flirtation with SS chic during a spell as handmaiden to the fledgling Sex Pistol has not been lightly forgiven by Siouxsie's more vulturine critics. But she and the Banshees, an early manifestation of which now settled trio boasted Sid Vicious at the drums, have survived this hostility - now largely replaced by shrill accusations of artiness - to become right markers in the Sturm und Drang squadrons of European post-punk music." Claims Pseuds Corner appearance was something he had aimed for when writing the piece for Radio Times and he is especially proud of the word "vulturine". Among Peel's other appearances in Private Eye was one for comparing Pink Floyd to the "cries of dying galaxies"

But unlike some of his Radio One colleagues I think he avoided an appearance in Colmanballs
