John Peel dies at 65
It's a sad day. John Peel, music broadcasting legend of the BBC, has died. Being able to listen to his show on the radio was honestly one of the best parts of moving to the UK for me. I had no idea music radio could be so good until I heard his show: he consistently introduced me to wonderful music I would never have heard otherwise, and I'm a music fanatic, so that's not an easy task. And he dedicated himself to new music with a verve and enthusiasm that was nothing short of life-affirming. The airwaves will be not be the same without him.
