John Peel R.I.P.

Cute insight into how John Peel chose what to play:

“…his method for choosing what to play on the show was so arbitrary. He called the system ‘childish and unfair’. He worked out that every week, if he listened around the clock every day, he received three weeks’ worth of music, so he often chose the music that came in good sleeves (skulls particularly appealed), or by bands with great names, or that he’d been handed in a taxi on the way to work.”
