John Peel’s record collection to go online

This is genuinely exciting. What sounds like the entire record collection of late, John Peel, DJ extraordinaire, to be put online by the BBC. According to Pitchfork, “his collection of LPs will be added in increments of 100 each week from May through October at a website called the Space, run by the BBC and Arts Council England”.

Apparently the collection first focus on Peel’s collection of 25,000 vinyl LPs, the 40,000 vinyl singles will come later. Let’s hope the famous Peel sessions will be added too.
