What ? When ? Why ?

In news on August 30, 2010 at 11:38 pm



What Is It ?

It is a sort of John Peel Day, but with this one it isn’t about artists who performed – it’s for those who listened…

When Is It ?

Every year on October 25th, the day we lost the great man.

Why Do It ?

To honour his memory and legacy.

The genesis of this idea came about when I read a post by Teenage Kicks ( which commemorated what would have been John Peel’s 71st birthday.

It was this coupled with something that The Vinyl Villian had done which inspired me to create a in which we all commemorate and remember the legendary DJ.

How Can I Get Involved ?

By posting something, anything… which is Peel related.
If you have a blog or a Twitter account then post a Peel Session track from your favourite artist and label it #keepingitpeel

If you are on Facebook you can join in too: Post a YouTube video of a Peel Session track.

Who Is Taking Part ?
