go stick some Fall on people.
are you thinking of Princess Diana?
my fault. misread a blog. he WAS born 67 years ago today tho. *abandon life*
a bit of a fool!
I think about him a lot, especially when I see bands he would have liked.
to think of john and stick the fall on is good enough for me.
I wouldn't know what bands he would like really, he saw merit in so many different things.
to be honest it feels like an eternity since he died. I still miss him dearly.
Hmmmm, so much Fall to choose from...
this really is painful, makes me feel sad every time it comes up. I don't go for the Fall in times of Peel crisis but Even As We Speak or Altered Images.
Naplam Death on
make sure it fades in.
at the wrong speed.
Get a track that starts quietly, then stop it and start playing an 'emergency tape' of stuff life Cafe Del Mar, before stopping it three minutes later, cursing loudly and playing the actual track.
I miss John Peel.
I just dislike the general deification of peel.
cos like he was only a DJ
they're "only" a band.
they create something.
DJ's essentially don't. They might have cool taste, but they merely facillitate the enjoyment of other peoples work
having his own day is a bit like Diana or something. I'm not sure he'd encurage it. In fact, I'm certain he wouldn't.
wouldn't mind us remembering him by playing music he and we liked. its not as if we're crying in front of his house.
But personally, I don't miss him, because he didn't do anything in my life. He was just a man who played records. Its not like he died fighting for his country or anything.
i really really miss the big chap,i only heard his show from around 2001 till 2004 but the amount of bands and artists that i now love from hearing them on his show is massive.
Iv not listend to radio 1 at night in about a year and a half now...its pish nowadays
