In praise of ... John Peel | Editorial | Comment is free | The Guardian
Because for nearly 40 years he was on Radio 1 and became the most subversive fixture in pop broadcasting. Because he's one of the few radio DJs who never stopped listening to demos, or buying albums. Because when the people putting his record collection online (a process that began yesterday) get to the letter F, the number of Fall rarities will be mind-boggling. Because of the regularity with which he wouldplayrecordsatthewrongspeed before correcting the mistake. Because he took the trouble to count up the votes for his Festive 50.
