    Just heard this too. Very sad - apart from his cracking programmes, he was a grumpy old man par excellence.
     
  3. That is bad news :cry:

    Do you know John Peel was present when Lee Harvey Oswald was first shown at a press conference as the killer of JFK?

    Or was it when he shot him?

    Anyway , John was ex-Forces too.

    RIP John Peel ,

  5. Agreed - a grumpy old man par excellence.

    His Radio 4 show, "Home Truths", was ( WAS??? I just wrote WAS??? FFS ) a real gem, spoke to us all as individuals.

  13. Only DJ who could seriously play the latest tunes and then follow it with a classical track and make the program make sense!

    A great loss.
