1990s Evolution

Mary Anne Hobbs celebrates John Peel's legacy with highlights from his 90s shows.

Ever since he came off the pirate ships and joined Radio 1 in 1967, John Peel was a champion of new, exciting and occasionally challenging music like no other DJ.

Today BBC Radio 6 Music lives on in that pioneering spirit, with its presenters continuing the passion and love he showed for new music.

John Peel was a proud son of Merseyside, and, following the 6 Music Festival in Liverpool, there's another chance to hear the series tracing John's developing musical passions.

John's friend and fellow Radio 1 DJ, Mary Anne Hobbs introduces highlights of John's shows in the nineties.
