How does John Peel's spirit live on in the world of fanzines/zines? Keep the mistakes! Also, moreover... openness, exploration - not just sticking to narrow and trusted confines, challenging yourself/your tastes. I think The All Thrills No Frills Music Bill is a good old jumble of whatever we are passionate about, regardless of what anyone else would want/think - no agenda, no one to answer to/specifically cater for, and freedom to roam wildly.

Loads of excellent goings on to celebrate John Peel and his music ethos this October. Wasn't coming up in my regular gig searches, but then I came across this website by chance - hallelujah - Keeping It Peel has the listings all in one place. Everything from gigs to pub quizzes, to club nights with guest DJs... All looks brilliant fun.
