John Peel 1939 - 2004

John Peel is dead.

John Peel was a person who had a major influence on my world long before I ever knew who he was. He was the British DJ who championed the careers of David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Joy Division, the Smiths, the Cure, and many more favourite pop musicians besides; without his promotion, they may never have been recorded, much less heard. He was also the fellow who introduced Hendrix and Nirvana to the UK radio waves; his career went back (glossed over on the BBC site) to the heyday of seagoing pirate radio in Britain.
