A year after the untimely death of John Peel, the legendary DJ is to be commemorated in true rock 'n' roll style with a day of gigs across the UK.
John Peel Day will be held on October 13 and is the brainchild of Peel's colleagues at BBC Radio 1, in consultation with his wife Sheila Ravenscroft, who wanted to find an appropriate way of celebrating his life and 40-year contribution to music and broadcasting.
Radio 1 bosses are hoping that venues across the UK, from big concert halls to small clubs, will organise gigs as part of a day-long music festival. http://media.guardian.co.uk/radio/story/0,12636,1554721,00.html
