The Peel Sessions Have Ended

This just in...

John Peel, legendary Radio 1 and Radio 4 presenter, has died suddenly on holiday in Peru. For more info, check here.

I have always highly respected John Peel and his always interesting and intriguing selections. His "session" recordings were great and he was presented challenging music to his audience, and genuinely loved it. One of the best DJs ever. His death is a great loss to the music industry, as there were few willing to take a chance on new, innovative, artists.

(Nic Harcourt WISHES he could be John Peel.)
