John Peels Record-Collection online

Das John Peel Centre for the Creative Arts hat heute die ersten einhundert Alben aus John Peels Plattensammlung online gestellt, das Projekt wird im nächsten halben Jahr das komplette Archiv digitalisieren und über Spotisfy verfügbar machen.

John Peel’s personal record collection consists of over 26,000 LPs, 40,000 singles and many thousands of CDs.

The project will release the names and song titles of 100 records a week from the collection, for 26 weeks between May- Oct, featuring the first records from one letter of the alphabet each week. People will be able to listen online to many of these records via links compiled by the project.

Each week, one artist will be chosen for a video interview, which will feature alongside the collection- these artists are being chosen by Sheila Ravenscroft (John Peel’s wife) and their children.
