In memorium: John Peel

Sad news today from Peru, where legendary BBC broadcaster John Peel died of a heart attack while on vacation. Peel was a longtime (and legendary) presence on the BBC, starting his career in the 1960s as a DJ on a pirate radio station before joining BBC's Radio One in 1967. Peel was always a champion of good and necessary music, and today we offer a tribute...these songs were among Peel's All-Time Festive Top 50.

Click here to listen. R.I.P., John.

Ah, yes... who doesn't own at least one Peel Sessions CD?
