John Peel’s Shed

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless.


This performance features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands. A version of the show has been broadcast on Radio 4 and was chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.


John Peel’s Shed is partly inspired by John Osborne’s acclaimed debut book Radio Head: Up And Down the Dial of British Radio which tells the story of what happened when John decided to listen to a different radio station every day.


Circled in the Radio Times
Following an interval John returns with his second show. Inspired by an inheritance of old copies of the Radio Times, this heart-warming show celebrates how we think nostalgically about old programmes and how one person’s viewing and listening habits can tell us about their life.

“Shy and awkward but with a keen eye for a killer line and the significance of the trivia of daily life, Osborne sits somewhere between Tom Wrigglesworth and Daniel Kitson, which is a very good place to sit. I could have listened for hours” – ★★★★★
