We hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday afternoon. There will be lot’s of records to look through from Tuesday at thespace.org— John Peel Archive (@johnpeelarchive) April 29, 2012
Well this is exciting… full story at The Stool Pigeon:
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.
In short, earlier this year it was announced that the late radio DJ’s vaults – which allegedly comprise 25,000 LPs, 40,000 singles and “many thousands” of CDs – would be made into a Arts Council-funded “interactive online museum” called The Space, allowing fans to stream the great man’s collection while viewing his “personal notes, archive performances and new filmed interviews with musicians.”
