How John Peel Changed My Life

Ten years on from John Peel's last show on Radio 1, Phil Taggart sits down with fellow DJs to reflect on Peel's life and delve into the Radio 1 archive.

10 years on from John Peel's last show on Radio 1, Phil Taggart sits down for a round-table discussion with Annie Mac, Rob da Bank, Annie Nightingale and Huw Stephens to reflect on John's life and delve into the Radio 1 archive.

As well as giving listeners a taste of his eclectic, eccentric and endearing approach to broadcasting, they also pick current tracks that they'd like to play to John if he was still around today.

Over the course of the hour we hear from fellow presenters at Radio 1 to find out what it was like to work with John; alongside contributions from Jack White, Biffy Clyro and DJ Friction about how his support changed their lives. Plus 1Xtra's Cameo, Mala and Nicky Blackmarket explain how the 64 year old DJ introduced grime and dubstep to the nation just before his death.
