John Peel’s Record Collection is here and it is so cool. You can’t stream everything unless it’s already on Spotify, but the A-section of his vinyl archive has been scanned and cataloged (B-Z are coming), there are links to his Peel Sessions and podcasts, and there are some never-before-seen home videos to watch. I’m not getting any work done today.
