The guys over at Football & Music have come up with the fabulous idea of a ‘John Peel Day’ for bloggers, #keepingitpeel on 25th October 2010.
The premise is pretty simple, it’s a way of paying tribute to him and his legacy, after all Peel was probably the most influential radio DJ in history who since the 60’s had been exposing mainstream UK listeners to bands they would have otherwise never have heard and introduced punk, reggae, hiphop, and drum & bass to them.
I’m delighted to be taking part, if you would like to too its simple; post something on 25th October which is Peel related. If you have a blog or a Twitter or Facebook then post a Peel Session track from your favourite artist and label it #keepingitpeel. It couldn’t be simpler really.
Predictable or not here’s………………
The Undertones – Teenage Kicks
