John Peel RIP

Here in Canada we don’t get BBC Radio 1, but all through my youth I collected albums and tapes (and taped albums) of The Peel Sessions. The Fall, X-Mal Deustchland, Joy Division, New Order, and countless others. So, I was very saddened to read, this morning, that John Peel has died. Rest in peace, John, the world of music will never be the same. We’ve lost a champion and a hero.
