Nice Hat

The headgear? John Peel has the details...

  "On Wednesday night over on Radio 1 we featured a band from Denton, Texas, called Lift To Experience.

John Peel with hat, Denton Village Hall, Norfolk
In tribute to their home-town, in which I had, years ago, attempted to sell insurance, our son Thomas and I travelled to Denton, Norfolk, where Tom took photos of me wearing my cowboy hat in front of Denton village hall to present to the band. They were quite moved that we’d gone to such pointless lengths. There’s another Denton just off the Al in Cambridgeshire and we’re planning a visit there soon..."

Thank you, John. These things matter.
