[News] John Peel's Record Collection Being Archived As Online Museum

Even though he sadly passed back in 2004, John Peel's legend lives on. Now it will continue to live on indefinitely as the legendary BBC presenters record collection is to be immortalised online. The BBC and the British Arts Council are working together to create something that they are calling The Space. It's set to be a digital music service that will include all of Peel's home studio and record collection along with Peel's own notes, and the legendary performances from the John Peel sessions. It's also said to include interviews with the artists John well and truly loved and championed. NME reports that it will include 25,000 LPs and 40,000 singles. I thin kit's safe to say we're all a long way off of that but now we can share in the great mans musical wealth.
