Pixies at the BBC is a compilation of live BBC radio sessions by the American alternative rock band Pixies. Released by Elektra Records in 1998, five years after their initial split, it was recorded over several sessions between 1988 and 1991 at the BBC. All songs were written by Black Francis except tracks 1 and 15. The final track, "(In Heaven) Lady in the Radiator Song" was written by Peter Ivers and David Lynch for Eraserhead. The album is characterised by its raw, underproduced sound.
