John Peel

Sadly I’ve just woken up with a shock to the gutting news that John Peel suddenly died of a heart attack whilst on holiday in Peru today.

Only recently I was having a conversation with Bill about what a great bloke John Peel is (was) and how he has acquired god status for his influence on alternative music, Radio 4’s Home Truths (which every so often I still managed to catch over here using the Internet) and (best of all) for wanting to put Essex into Room 101.

He’ll be deeply missed. Radio is never going to be the same.

    Absolutely devastated when I heard the news today. Can Saturdays ever be the same? In my youth he introduced many of the bands at the student gigs. Stood next to him at the bar. Will be greatly missed.
