Did you watch the BBC2 tribute last night at 10pm? I am that 'sad' that I also taped it so I can watch it over again. Don't get too upset s6k. You can't expect everyone to feel as strongly as you. The guest's comment was out of order and I'm sure he'll be slated by the rest of this thread, and, of course, it serves him right. JP and LFC are heroes to a big, wide world and so they should be.

Before we could afford a telly or a car, John's alt-radio presentations helped us through the worst time of the day (the 30 minutes after dragging our asses out of bed and facing the trek to the bus-stop ready for the tedious journey to work) - a daily injection of real tonic to face the day. After nearly 40 years he somehow seemed part of the family.

David Jacobs (last Sunday night - Radio 2) said that he didn't care too much for John's choice of music. Further endorsement of what a top guy he was.

Bless you John ....... and thanks for the tonics and the memories.

One of the nice things about the tributes and media coverage of Peel's death is the lack of maudlin sentalmentality. Everyone is sorry to see him gone and they all miss a broadcaster of taste and integrity; but no-one is "crying in the streets," no-one feels that they "can't go on." In short, everyone is behaving rationally, like adults. Surely a worthy tribute to John Peel. I'm sure Boris Johnson approves.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio3_aod.shtml?andykershaw

Radio 3 is playing Andy Kershaw's tribute to John Peel on the above unblue link...it will be available until the weekend I think.

As he says, " Instead of a minutes silence lets have an hour and three quarters of noise."

And the Undertones have just confirmed for next yrs Glastonbury. He'll be missed.

I used to listen to him before I went to sleep. John Peel on weekdays and the Top 40 on Sunday were the only things I listened to Radio 1 for. I don't think I'll bother now.

Rest In Peace, John.

I've always admired John Peel without actually liking his broadcasts. Although a man of incredible integrity, I found his music programmes unlistenable - one hour of obscure shit to find a gem? It was never worth it. Home Truths was dull beyond belief. I never liked his voice, either. However, working as he did in a medium dominated by wankers, he was the genuine article. The music was always first. He never considered himself to more important than the music and he never talked over the music, either.

I felt a greater loss when Alexis Korner died because his programmes, quite frankly, were better, and I loved his voice.

Teenage Kicks, however, was a great pop record.

I wonder if his record collection will now be sold on eBay by his wife, Shelia?

Chorus:
Did ye ken John Peel with his wit so droll
Did ye ken John Peel with his music bold
Did ye ken John Peel and the truths he told
Oh so early on Saturday morning

        Well I heard John Peel on the BBC
        And I knew when he spoke it was meant for me
        And I always thought he would ever be
        On the air every Saturday morning

Chorus

        Did ye ken John Peel with his gravelly voice
        Did ye ken John Peel with his bands of choice
        You can call it hip; you can call it noise
        But you never could say it was boring

Chorus

        Did ye ken John Peel and his modest ways
        Did ye ken his sublimely eclectic taste
        Did ye stay up nights far too many days
        Though ye still had to work in the morning

Chorus

        Do ye ken John still does a brilliant show
        But ye won't find it on the radio
        Now he spins his tunes where they all have soul
        But we'll miss him on Saturday morning

they are auctioning his record collection off

each record has Peel's notes on the cover, 3 asterisks meant it must be played. He had to extend his house just so he could fit them all in!

up to now, a radio station has offered Ł1 million.

The New Bands Tent at Glastonbury, is to be renamed the John Peel Stage. I for once, loved Peel at Glastonbury, and looked forward to seeing him presenting it every year almost as much as the event himself. He was stoned one year!!!!

The BBC are going to do a tribute of some sort to him, after discussing it with his family.

In the late eighties I met Viktor, a musician from Lenningrad, who was in Köln briefly as part of a project which brought Russian musicains over to this city. He told me about his band, who in their pre Gorbachev days were considered to be "criminal". They were arrested by the KGB after every gig, which he accepted as an occupational hazard! Viktor knew of John Peel, because he played their home made tapes on the air.
John Peel was the true champion of the outsiders - of the musicians who do not have the powerful media and financial pull to get them past the the ring fenced barriers, which effectively bar the way of most musicians to any form of airplay. He made mistakes, but he was quite entitled to. That was part of his integrity. I'll take John Peel any day against the spineless, sanitised salesmen of mainstream radio.
Rest in peace John. You will be sadly missed.

Listening to Andy Kershaw tell how he met John recently and how the move of his late night show to the early hours (1am i think he said)was taking its toll on john, really shocked me. When you hear some of the absolute 'pop' shite (in my opinion) that has been spewed out by national radio (radion 1 in particular) over the years by some so-called DJ's who were not fit to be allowed near a turntable; and you consider how they've treated people like John Peel (& kershaw himself) i.e sidelining them to the remote hours or another station is a shocking disgrace.

Peel did more for the furtherence of quality comtempory (& our traditional) music over the last 40 years than anyone else in the medial.

Ok so they carried on employing him and John being loyal was happy to stay on but they could have treated him better at the latter end of his career i reckon. But p'raps i'm being naive to expect that this megga 'conservative', music industry/money driven media of ours could ever change. After all look how it treats our traditional music.

I was saddened too. I found his voice one of the best on radio and on tv voice-overs. I didn't share his taste in modern bands but he also liked the odd folkie and also old blues men like M.John Hurt & Bo Diddley. His non-DJ persona as indulgent father and sympathetic interviewer made him seem a really nice guy. He will be reunited with John Walters, now , a great combination.

And the thing about that "How refreshing to meet a waitress who won't serve you a second cup of coffee because, in her words, she can't be arsed" is that from pretty well anyone else on the radio it woudld have been meant sarcastically.

But with John you know he meant what he said - relishing the oddity of life, taking pleasure in the waitress's insistance on being a person, with her touch of bloody mindedness, and proud that Liverpool hasn't rolled over and surrendered.

I've just dredged up a couple of examples of John's style from the inner recesses of my mind. They won't look like much written down, but try to imagine them delivered in that unique, laid back, laconic style:

'I'd like to thank the gentleman who wrote to me this week suggesting that I was, in some strange way, an outdoor toilet facility.'

and

'I went to Liverpool last week for the first time in years. How refreshing to meet a waitress who won't serve you a second cup of coffee because, in her words, she can't be arsed.'

In the early 1970's when I was into Floyd, Zeppelin and blues-based music, John Peel was playing Finbar and Eddie Furey, Trees, the Woods Band, the Albion Country Band (with Steve Ashley, Sue Draheim and Royston Wood in its line-up), and the Cheviot Ranters Country Dance Band. I was hooked! This is testimony to the breadth of John's musical foresight, and he will be sorely missed.
