Are teenage Dreams so hard to beat

John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, better know as John Peel is dead. He was on a working holiday in the city of Cuzco with his wife Sheila when he suffered a heart attack.

He joined the BBC Radio one when it launched in 1967 and became one of the first DJs to give exposure to punk, reggae and hip-hop, before they crossed over into the mainstream. He liked the weird shit. And a lot of that weird shit became the influential stuff of each decade. He is the DJ that every presenter on night time 2FM, night time Today FM and all the presenters on Freak FM want to be if they never grow up.

And yes that includes you messers Fanning and Dunne.

If you never heard a Peel Session, go here and hear any session from January 2002 to February 2004.

Today is a day for "Teenage Kicks" and old sessions I believe.
