John Peel dies

John Peel has died.

One chap over on the BBC site says this: I’m sure I have similar memories to everyone else – the main one being as a kid, under the duvet, with a radio on listening to exciting new music that you couldn’t hear anywhere else. Not only was the music amazing, but it felt like your mate (or kindly uncle perhaps) was presenting it….

That is just what it was like.
