People who know the music lover that is John Peel are aware that he's long been an admirer of the late John Peel. To pay an hommage to this legendary radio host and his cult series of shows, Mr Teknoist just started something called "I Wanna Be John Peel", in which he aims at broadcasting new music (and not only his own material, or not only breakcore), at times inviting other artists to choose tracks that mean a lot to them.
While it starts with The Teknoist stating that he's not very good with microphones and doesn't like his own voice, this first "I Wanna Be John Peel" shows turned out very nicely. The guests these times were Dean Rodell (of Underhill and Machine Code) and Dave Edwards of The Sect, which picked up tracks by New Model Army and Brian Eno (among others) and spoke a bit about them.
You can listen to this show here or below, and download it on The Teknoist's website. A good idea, a nice initiative, and a fun thing for everybody to listen to. John Peel would approve (and I'm pretty sure that he would play tracks by The Teknoist if he was still alive). Rest in peace, John, we've got this.
