He was 65. Peel had broadcast regularly on Radio 1 ever since joining the station when it first opened in 1967 — initially for just a six-week contract. He started out as a DJ in Dallas five years earlier, coming back to Britain initially to work on pirate radio. Peel and Sheila have four children, all in their twenties. ——————————————————————————————————1/13— John Peel obituary 353 Get your daily Marjorie Orr horoscope sent to your mobile See p108 Void Peel Cinema Total Ents
