it was amazing

A lovely book, really good to remember John Peel and why he was so loved. Also very evocative of the pre-digital age where there were only so many seams from which to mine culture, and how rich a seam Peel was.

Very sad halfway through when he dies and The Pig takes up the story, you don't get any sense from the first half of the book that this is an old man approaching his end. A really sad death.

I wonder what would have happened to John. 6music exists in his image to an extent, but I wonder how much that would be the case if he were still alive, and if he would have been pensioned off to the Friday night slot on 6 that his son now inhabits, or whether he would have maintained a presence on R1?
