Dex (and John Peel Day)

So today is John Peel Day (14 October), which this year is the 10th anniversary of the musical legend’s final broadcast for Radio One.

I’m sure Teenage Kicks will rightly get a few airings, but here’s a track from one of my few taped recordings I have from one his 2004 shows. Will always remember his intro, noting that a track he’d played earlier in the show was called ‘Ducks’, and that since this one was called ‘Dex’, “I should have played them back to back… An opportunity missed, I think.”

I rediscovered the tape knocking about years later and had another listen. Bought this album by edIT as a result.

Passed on, but still dishing out musical wisdom. Thanks, John.
