This episode is a Sunday Special that Thomas did at WREK on September 3, 2000 in honor of the life and music of Witt Mills, who had died in a kayaking accident not long before. Thomas was joined in the studio by Shane Pringle, Tony Gordon and Brendan Digel. This included a lot of music that would later end up on the compilation Dust Collection Agency (still in print and available at that link.)

We continue to scour the Peake-osphere for tapes, CDs and any other representation of the man in audio form. Dena Peake has graciously lent a treasure trove of cassettes to the project and we’ll be publishing those over the course of the coming year. If you find any of these recordings, please let us know at Also, please leave us any feedback or comments on the shows. This project exists to be of service to those who knew, loved, were fans of and miss Thomas Peake. Let us know how we’re doing and how we can be of service to you. And don’t forget the Peake Foundation!

Update: We also have a scan of the original playlist online as well.


  1. Great intro Dave!

    That Magic Bone song that starts things off makes me want to jump around like an idiot. Witt would hammer the hell out of his bass.

    Note to anyone else reading this: we’ll have the playlist (the original “live sheets”) posted here in a day or two.

  3. Wow just was looking on WREK to see whats scheduled to play and find out another kindred spirit from the days of Milo’s and Metroplex gone. At least I got to see u at the metroplex reuonion Thomas! I’ll never forget how u twisted my arm into dj’ing all summer (instead of partying) since I had a punk rock nightclub I owed it to the punk community back in ’93. So I threw small parties at the station. I wondered why u never returned my calls. Any body holla if u know me tell me what’s up! I’m doing a charity now btw I’m glad Thomas was proud of me, what a great guy. The goods ones go first! Brendan Digel hangin with a bunch of Pius buds and your reunion is this year! holla!
