Great news today for all music lovers- John Peel’s record collection will be made available online. It’s an Arts Council funded project, set to be made available in May. That’s over 25,ooo vinyl albums, not to mention singles and CDs, along with personal notes and video interviews… Read all about it on The Quietus. It’s an important gift to give to any fan of music, and kudos to his widow Sheila Ravenscroft for backing the project and making available this amazing collection “to his fans as he would have wanted.” We have a feeling our record collection is about to triple come May.
