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.
