First 100 records from Radio 1 DJ's archive to go online tomorrow
THE FIRST 100 records from John Peel’s personal record collection will be online as of tomorrow (May 1).
The records are being archived as part of an online museum project called The Space, which hopes to digitise the entirety of the late Radio 1 DJ’s whopping vinyl stash — some 25,000 vinyl LPs, 40,000 vinyl singles and about a bajillion more CDs than Adele’s flogged in the last 12 months.
With the site apparently looking to post 100 new records every week — and interviews and live sessions also in the offing — there’ll be plenty more to come for a few years yet on this, if our maths does not deceive us.
