John Peel Remembered  Margrave Of The Marshes
  • John Peel Remembered Margrave Of The Marshes

  • Includes the BBC Radio 4 serialisation of ‘Margrave of the Marshes’, John Peel’s part-written autobiography completed by his wife, Sheila Ravenscroft and read by Michael Angelis and Carolyn Pickles. John Peel was one such, whose contribution to British culture is undeniable. His 40-year career on Radio 1 and Radio 4 reached a huge and diverse audience, and he influenced the musical tastes of millions. Guaranteed to appeal to all John Peel’s many devoted fans, this release is a perfect reminder of the genius of a man many regarded as the best DJ ever.

John Peel was born the day before the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. His 38-year career as a radio DJ is the stuff of legend and the bands he went on to discover too numerous to mention, though David Bowie, Roxy Music, T Rex, Genesis, Joy Division, New Order, The Smiths, Radiohead and the White Stripes would do as a start. He lived in Suffolk with his wife Sheila and their children William, Thomas, Alexandra and Florence, plus various dogs and cats, until his death in October 2004.
