John Peel dies...
Legendary radio DJ John Peel dies. RIP.
I was never what you'd call a regular listener to his Radio 1 show but those times in my life when I did listen (when studying for exams usually) I used to love it. He just had that amazing knack of picking great songs - whether it was punk, techno, jazz, blues, rock, pop or rap. You may not like the songs he played but you had to admit they were the best in their field. The man had taste.
And that amazing sense of humour. On Radio 4 he could talk about the gravest of subjects and yet still keep the ability to see the lighter side - that ironic outlook. Top bloke.
