John Peel is Dead

Just read that John Peel died today. I have listened to his show for years and have a couple of discs of live sessions from his studio. Sad news. This is an interesting article including quotes from members of New Order and Damon Albarn.

Here's another good article that includes sound clips (haven't heard the Pavement song before, and I used to be a major completist!)

Great article. Frankly, I loved listening to his show over BBC Radio 1. I will miss this quite a bit...

Here is the link to the radio site and the tributes...

Interesting part of the website includes his favorite tracks from the last hundred years...

I will now be relying more and more on Steve LeMacq from Radio 1 for Music...
