John Peel may well have been the biggest influence on the musical tastes of all of us and without doubt was a major inspiration for us releasing these podcasts into the world. We all listened religiously not only to his late night shows on Radio 1, but also his half hour oasis of sanity on the World Service. In this podcast we finally shut the fuck up and play the songs that mean the most to us, the ones that John Peel introduced us to.

Happy birthday, John! Thanks for all the music.

And some physicality from the show…
