The Evolution of John Peel

"Ever since he came off the pirate ships and joined Radio 1 in 1967, John Peel was a champion of new, exciting and occasionally challenging music like no other DJ.

Today BBC Radio 6 Music lives on in that pioneering spirit, with its presenters continuing the passion and love he showed for new music. 

Mary-Anne Hobbs presents the first show in this five-part series, which this week covers the 1970s.

Highlights include Tyrannosaurus Rex performing live for John at the BBC Paris Theatre at the turn of the decade, a legendary Peel session from Joy Division, reggae and roots from Culture, Swedish punk from Attentat, and the band Peel frequently cited as the best in the world, The Undertones."
