I think that's actually on at the wrong speed, there.

Music "John Peel got his hands dirty. The BBC hated him for it but try as they might, he just wouldn't go, and people kept on listening to his show. It had been the same a decade earlier when he was playing Tyrannosaurus Rex, Captain Beefhart, Fairport Convention and The Third Ear Band on The Perfumed Garden and Top Gear. They wanted rid of him then. He went on Top of the Pops once and forgot the name of Amen Corner who were Number 1. The producer allegedly told him "I'll see you never work in television again." Fourteen years later, he was back on the show. That was John Peel - he outlasted eveeryone." -- Keith Topping celebrates Peel's life
