In Memoriam – John Peel (1939-2004)


For an updated version of blog/this article see / Feed

Legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel (born John Robert Parker Ravenscroft) was solely responsible for exposing the world the artists that wouldn’t get a chance to be heard otherwise (although he also recorded popular/mainstream acts, such as 10,000 Maniacs, AC/DC and A Flock Of Seagulls). With his passing in October of 2004, the world lost one of the most respected supporters of independent music.
