thoughts on john peel

If as many people were devoted listeners of John Peel as all the nice tributes I keep reading suggest, then answer me this? How come The Fall never had a number one single? Well, it's not too late. I think we should organise simultaneous re-releases of The Fall's 'How I wrote Elastic Man', the Wedding Present's 'Brassneck' and, of course, 'Teenage Kicks', and get everyone who loved John to go out and invest. A Fall, Weddoes and Undertones top 3 next week would be a pretty nice way to say goodbye :-)
