    NOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    He was one of my heros - he was sooooooo good - he was also one of my dad's as well and he even got to meet him at a concert in about 1971 or something.

    John Peel had ever evolving tastes in music and there is no one in mainstream British Media who can replace him. Jo (wannabe Peely) Wiley's musical knowledge only starts at about 1985!

    Oh no! What tragic news! Oh, I'll miss him. I used to listen to his show occasionally, one of the best things on the radio. I never knew what he was going to put on next. He'll be a talent that cannot be replaced. My condolences extended to his family and friends at this time.

    I don't go in for mouring sickness, which is why i'm so sincere when I say it is a terrible loss. Truly terrible.

    I hope he's resting in loud music.

    Very sad news indeed.

    A distinctive voice and entertaining personality lost to TV and radio.

    It's no overstatement to say that John Peel was a legend.
