John Peel's Record Box

This lovely little documentary from 2005, a year after his death, tells the story of of the life of legendary British DJ John Peel via the contents of a box of 130 7" singles that he kept under his desk separate from the thousands of other records and CDs that made up the collection.  You can find a list of the contents of the box here.

Featuring contributions from his family, fellow DJs and a host of music luminaries such as Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks), Billy Bragg, Jack White (The White Stripes), Tsungi Rai & Poko (Misty in Roots), Mark E. & Brix Smith (The Fall), Laurie Anderson, Feargal Sharkey and Damian & John O'Neill (The Undertones) and loads more.

It's a nice tribute to the man and of a life lived in music.

We miss you John.
