About the Author

John Peel was born shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. The influence of his thirty-eight-year career as a radio DJ is well documented and the artistes he championed over the years too numerous to mention - David Bowie, Roxy Music, T Rex, The Undertones, Joy Division, The Fall, The Smiths, Pulp and the White Stripes are but a few. He lived in Suffolk with his wife Sheila and their children William, Thomas, Alexandra and Florence, plus various dogs and cats, until his death in October 2004.

Reviews

"As warm and funny as the man himself." * Choice Magazine * "Fit to burst with colourful commentary... he crams in references to music that will have you in hysterics over his sumptuously structured prose." * Martha De Lacey, London Lite * "What makes the Olivetti Chronicles stand out is that it contains his voice rather than anyone else's... It helps (and is entertaining) to imagine Peel speaking these pieces, and then they become very fine indeed." * Metro * "This entertaining book is essential reading for Peel fans." * Zavvi music book reviews *
