The legendary Radio 1 DJ John Peel died today from a heart attack at 65. This is tragic news, as listening to John Peel's eclectic late-night radio show was a regular event for me in the evening. He had a wonderful voice, a habit of mumbling to himself, forgetting the names of the songs he was playing, talking to his producer, and playing the strangest mix of music ever heard of national radio (death metal followed by folk followed by trance is usual), and we loved him for it all.
John, you will be missed.
