Legendary radio DJ John Peel dies

by Richard on October 26, 2004

I can hardly believe this. One of the most influential music broadcasters on British radio, John Peel, has died while on a working holiday in Peru. His laconic style, his passion for new music and his compassionate humanity made every show he presented worth listening to. There are lots of others who’ll pay their tributes. For me it is enough just to note that his favourite single was Teenage Kicks by the Undertones, and he it was gave them their first break.

God bless John.

Update Progressive Adullamite has a photo tribute.
