BBC Radio 1 has set up a site honoring the legacy of late, great Radio 1 DJ John Peel. John was and continues to be a big inspiration & influence on everything we do on this site. Here's a mini-bio ripped straight from the Wiki
"John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, OBE (30 August 1939 – 25 October 2004),
known professionally as John Peel, was an English disc jockey, radio presenter, and journalist. Known for his eclectic taste in music and his honest and warm broadcasting style, John Peel was a popular and respected DJ and broadcaster. He was one of the first to play reggae and punk on British radio. His significant influence on alternative rock, Pop, British hip hop and dance music is acknowledged. He was one of the original DJs of BBC Radio 1 in 1967 and the only original DJ remaining on that station at the time of his death."
To celebrate his day Radio 1 wants gig photos from any live shows happening today submitted here.
In our own way we hope to continue John's work here on FWYB.
