Ann Peebles was one of the female soul music singers who emerged in the early 1970s, enjoyed chart success and attracted Peel's attention. The DJ was a big fan of Peebles and described her as "the owner of one of the world's great voices" on his 11 July 2002 (Radio Mafia) show. In 1999, he nominated her biggest American hit 'I Can't Stand The Rain' for his Peelenium 1974. After his death, a copy of the record was found in the wooden box of favourite singles featured in the TV documentary John Peel's Record Box.

Ann Peebles did a single Peel session, in 1974; she was also a favourite of Peel's friend and colleague Andy Kershaw, and in 2005 recorded a session for his show.
