THE EVOLUTION OF JOHN PEEL - 1990s EVOLUTION (320kbs-m4a/129mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 17th September 2017
Ever since he came off the pirate ships and joined Radio 1 in 1967, John Peel was a champion of new, exciting and occasionally challenging music like no other DJ.
Today BBC Radio 6 Music lives on in that pioneering spirit, with its presenters continuing the passion and love he showed for new music.
Mary-Anne Hobbs presents the second show in this five-part series, which this week covers the 1980s.
Highlights include Peel sessions from Blur and Pulp, alternative US music from The Mountain Goats, plus home grown indie bands including Kenickie and Bis.
Plus 6 Music DJ Steve Lamacq will give his favourite memories of Peel in the decade he joined the BBC.
