Who's playing the good music now? Somebody on 6music? Or does nobody listen to the radio anymore?
kennedy and hillcock on xfm are generally worth punt
a bit hooked on it
I can't find anything on it
the show on now is pretty good
this is the full schedule
operates on a similar(ish) ethos. It's no surprise that he stepped in for a bit after Peel died, although it did surprise people at the time.
radio 1 was the old peel slot, well, once he got bumped upto 12 till 2.
Gid's the man. :-)
on Resonance FM
your entire life downloading a shitload of music and consuming it instead of enjoying it then aye!
nowhere near as good a presenter as peel. seems well up himself, peel wasn't. music-wise da bank is good, but more predictable than peel.
on 6music, stuart maconie is the most similar, humble style and unpredictable music.
gudrun gut is great on ocean club radio eins. on a recent show she played: illa j, velvet underground, can, ennio morricone, theo parrish, john coltrane, kate bush.
Not really on the same level, but he is lovely.
and less generic, skinny indie kid music try mine at www.damnably.com . The shows feature live sessions, interviews, groundbreaking music both old and new from many genres and from all over the world. It has hardly any of the bands DIS hypes and follows the John Peel remit of bands doing something I've not heard before.
here is the latest playlist

try my bi-weekly net-radio Podcast show. I listened to John Peel from age 8 and have a pretty open taste and go for music that is groundbreaking and doing something original, which was the remit John Peel followed too. The show is over a year and half old and can be found at www.damnably.com . XFM, Radio 1 and Radio 6 are controlled by industry manufactored playlists and the DJ's have littlke say in what they play so you can't blame them too much. They are just paid presenters reading a script. Anyway Damnbalu #37 is podcast now and has poppy country, LOFI, J-POP, Surf, MonsterRock, John Peel, and Stinking Lizaveta live.
doing something groundbreaking and original was not john peel's remit- he played loads of generic stuff, some of it good. wasn't too keen on the happy hardcore stuff, though.
also nah about radio 1 and 6music dj's having little say in what they play. pretty sure stuart maconie has complete control over what he plays. see also- westwood, mary anne hobbs, gilles peterson, annie nightingale, chris goldfinger, fabio and grooverider, most of them.
Rob da Bank is o.k., he's not really a risk taker though. not that Peel thought he was taking risks. i don't think he thought of it in as calcultaed a way as that, even though he knew enough about radio to know that he was a risky proposition having 2 hours of radio time to kill - literally.
she is brilliant
