The Ben Lomond Free Press

I heard an article on the radio yesterday about John Peel’s record collection being put on line. His wife (who JP used to affectionately refer to as “the pig”) was very interesting as she recounted how some of John’s favourite listening would perhaps surprise his fans (Roy Orbison and Status Quo being two artists mentioned)

The site ishere and is a fun interactive way of accessing photos, clips and a treasure trove of radio sessions from Peel’s long career in broadcasting and journalism. To keep you interested only bands/artistes beginning with A from the record collection have been catalogued so far. If you pull one of the vinyl albums from the shelf and click on it, your browser will then proceed to that album on iTunes which is a neat trick and may explain at least in part how the project is being funded.
