Remembering John Peel

It was 11 years ago today, October 25, 2004, that we lost John Peel.

As stated in Wikipedia: He was one of the first broadcasters to play progressive rock records on British radio, and he is widely acknowledged for promoting artists working in various genres. Fellow DJ Paul Gambaccini described him as "the most important man in music for about a dozen years".

Mr. John devoted one of his legendary Peel Sessions featuring Lush:
Lush - Peel Session, 23 January 1990
Recordings: 'Hey Hey Helen', 'Leaves Me Cold' and 'Breeze'

'Hey Hey Helen' 


All three recordings together: 'Breeze', 'Hey Hey Helen' and 'Leaves Me Cold'
