Mike: John Peel was easily the most influential DJ in British history. Hard rock, Punk, indie, britpop. If there is a British band you like in any of these areas, chances are that they got their first radio airing on Peel's show. The man was priceless. And now he is gone. RIP John Peel, a gentleman and a scholar!

thanks, hobo. i guess i should've said something more on my post about him...

i think he jumpstarted a few american bands, too. i thought i'd heard that somewhere, but i don't know which ones... and i can't remember where i read/heard it... :(
