BBC Radio 6 Music is to broadcast a special radio show to mark what would have been John Peel’s 75th birthday.
To celebrate this and to mark the 10th Anniversary of his passing, the show on August 31st remembers the former Radio 1 presenter. “John Peel Remembered” will feature contributions from 6 Music presenters from Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Annie Nightingale and Mary Anne Hobbs, with a mixture of Peel sessions plus extracts from his original radio shows.
The show is produced by Adam Hudson and will air from 1pm till 2pm on 31st August 2014.
BBC stations have marked his death in a number of ways over the last decade, including naming Egton Wing in Broadcasting House after him, naming a lecture and award after him, and holding John Peel Days on BBC Radio 1. John died whilst on a working holiday in Cuzco with his wife Shelia in October 2004.
