Emma Peel · 2004-10-27

Today I have to admit, that I didn't know the name John Peel yet. My 'significant other' told me that we listened to his shows at radio1. Apparently, John was radio dj and a protagonist of off-mainstream music at the bbc. Why 'was'? Well, he isn't among us anymore. Since there is strong evidence that he was an idol to many of us and since he played, hence promoted, 'The Cure', 'Die Aertzte', 'Die Toten Hosen' etc. etc. etc. very early, he shall remain in our hearts, shouldn't he?

Bye John, now when you are away I might notice what you gave us.
