Today's the day that we mourn the death, but more importantly celebrate the life of the legendary John Peel, being 7 years since he died. To mark the occasion, here are 20 of the tracks and/or artists that I most associate with listening to the Peel show. If he was still with us today I'm sure he would've discovered some great new bands (he once said "Why should I stop liking new music as I get older, nobody expects your taste in theatre or cinema to stay the same"), but for now let's remember some of the acts that he introduced us all to, and raise a glass to the man and the legend.
