LAB008 – John Peel Day

LAB008 – John Peel Day

Today is the third anniversary of John Peel’s last live broadcast, October 11th, 2004. It quickly became a day for memorium (via concerts), so I thought I’d show some love as well (via e-mix tape). This is a small collection of songs recorded during some of the 4,000 or so “Peel Sessions”. I don’t have nearly as many as I’d like to because they are impossible to find, especially the collections released on Strange Fruit (and especially the earlier recordings), so my selection was limited. All of it is live-in-studio gold though, so no complaining. I recommend visitng his BBC webite or reading his (mostly auto)biography Margrave of the Marshes if you are interested in learning more. He was a fantastic writer alongside his infamous broadcasts, and quite the fascinating individual. RIP
