  3. Very unfair Mas. There was no need for Peel to be playing soul in the early 70's as the BBC had that covered. And his championing of 'the new music' in 1976 really did kickstart possibly the best era in British music ever. I have hundreds of his shows recorded and there's a huge amount of reggae, ska, rocksteady, soul, blues and so on. It is actually as good as I remember it being. Teenage Kicks is like Do I Love You - we've all heard it too many times for it to have any impact anymore. I still miss John Peel, very much indeed.
  4. That one the left must be super rare
