458 full John Peel shows - is that all?

Wow...This is completely insane, and I mean that in the best possible way. 458 complete John Peel broadcasts on Soundcloud! Thanks to Liverpool website, Seven Streets, for pointing these out, and thanks to +dB for posting them! What a valuable undertaking.

As Seven Streets says, "The scope of music on these shows is still gobsmacking. From fuzzy psychedelic rock to turn-of-the-century gospel music, clanging industrial to pastoral folk, Peel was the most wonderfully eclectic host to ever take to the airwaves. We love hearing how his typically dry, borderline shambolic presenting style was in effect right back in his earliest episodes, too. So take some time out over the next few months to explore these: open your ears, soak up some brilliantly broad sounds, and pay your respects to the greatest DJ who ever lived."

And, of course, don't forget about the John Peel Record Collection
