If you ever need to explain radio’s sustained popularity to someone, suggest they listen to John Peel’s Shed” – The Guardian
Sits somewhere between Tom Wrigglesworth and Daniel Kitson, which a very good place to sit. I could have listened for hours” – The Independent
Beautifully-written, funny and poignant. ”- The Scotsman
 A complete pleasure. All radio nerds need to see it but non nerds will also love it.”  – Greg James, Radio 1
This popular show returns to NAC in aid of British Red Cross.
In 2002 John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records. This is a masterpiece of storytelling; an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless. This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4 in December 2011, and chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.
