John Peel’s Record Collection to Be Preserved in Online Archive 

The British Arts Council is recreating a large portion of the late, beloved radio DJ John Peel’s extensive record collection for an online museum project called The Space. “What we’re hoping to do is create an online interactive museum which answers [the question of what was in Peel’s collection], but also provides the audience with a visualization of it,” Tom Barker, director of the John Peel Centre, told the BBC. “This is the first step in the journey of making one of the most important archives in modern music history available completely.”
