458 full John Peel Shows hit Soundcloud

This is phenomenal: someone has uploaded 458 John Peel Shows for your listening pleasure.

Beginning with some of the legendary broadcaster’s pirate radio shows and running all the way up until his final BBC show, this mother lode of classic radio shows covers Peel’s 37 year radio career.

While the late DJ’s prized collection (comprising 25,000 LPs, 40,000 singles and “many thousands” of CDs) is being made into an “interactive online museum,” no such effort had been made to share his historic live shows.

Thankfully, a Yorkshire Soundcloud user known only as +dB painstakingly digitized and uploaded all 458 episodes, totaling over 900 hours of music. If you’ve got a month to spare, stream the shows below. [via Seven Streets]
