BBC NEWS | Entertainment | TV and Radio | BBC Radio 1 to host John Peel Day

It’s almost a year since Peelie died of a heart attack, and I feel it only seemed fitting when I heard that the BBC are doing a John Peel Day on the 13th October. I look forward to hearing all the great stuff he played, enlightening the masses that there was something a lot better than the dross you get in the charts.

He was a pioneer.
