In 2002, John Osborne won a competition challenging listeners to write a slogan for the John Peel’s Radio 1 show. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in the wireless. The show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for all Peel fans to enjoy. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and it was chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.
