John Peel 1985 BBC Radio Show

Chart positions

This show was 6th in the global rap / hip-hop chart, 22nd in the global old school hip hop chart, 49th in the global rap chart and 56th in the global hip-hop/rap chart.

This show was broadcasted by John Peel on BBC Radio in 1985
One of the first airings on BBC for Mantronix and Steady B

To my knowledge John Peel was the first DJ on a major BBC radio station to play the likes of the Beastie Boys, RUN DMC and many others. A man with his music knowledge greatly missed by all.

I have much love for JP. I wouldn't have had half the knowledge I did of hiphop in those early years.

Great to hear this and the mindblowing Just Ice/Mantronik "Put that record back on" - one of the hardest / dopest cuts ever...

Was lucky enough to be interviewed by the man himself way back in the 80's for his music column in The Observer when I was a breaker.was real cool to listen to one of his shows. Great post
