Alone, Stinking and Unafraid

John Peel's 37 years of BBC1 shows from Top Gear to Sessions at Maida Vale
If just once I can pull off a wry, dry, insouciant joke like he did daily I'll die fulfilled
I remember when we did our first Peel session he said "And here we have the mighty Echo and the Bunnymen", and we were so chuffed.
