John Peel's Shed
This is a new show on Future Radio 96.9, Norwich's community radio station.

In 2002 I won a competition on John Peel's Radio 1 show, my prize was a box of records from John Peel's shed. This is a show featuring the best tracks from those records.

John Osborne is a writer and performer, based in Norwich. His first book, Radio Head was published by Simon&Schuster in 2009 and was Radio 4's Book of the Week. It features chapters on John Peel, Mark Radcliffe and Test Match Special, as well as profiles of stations including Radio 1, 6Music and Resonance FM.

He is a member of poetry collective Aisle16, who regularly perform at festivals including Glastonbury and Latitude. His first book of poetry, What if men burst in wearing balaclavas, was published by Nasty Little Press earlier this year.
