HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN PEEL
My guess is you have heard of this fella before, or at the very least you have seen Peel Sessions in the past and put 2 + 2 together. He was perhaps the best DJ out there, breaking radio taboos, introducing unknown musicians to the world, and only playing the music he loved. There is a great web site that has been set up after his death where you can peruse John Peel's massive record collection. There are a number of other great links there too - it is well worth spending some free time there. Here is the link to John Peel's Record Archive.
