John Peel's ShedJohn OsborneThis event has now finished
“If you ever need to explain radio’s sustained popularity to someone, suggest they listen to John Peel’s Shed”The Guardian
In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel's Radio 1 show; his prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to.
This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who's ever sought solace in the wireless.
Featuring a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel, many of which are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans.
A version of this show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and was also chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.
"Beautifully written, funny and poignant. Just as John Peel's records changed his life this lovely, simple, beautifully executed show has enriched ours"The Scotsman
