Links to Peel

Peel was a supporter of Freddy Fresh's work and his Howlin' record label. After Peel’s death, Freddy Fresh paid tribute to the man on the discogs website:

"I did 2 shows for John Peel one live in the studio at BBC with him and one sent in from Minnesota on a CD. John was one of the chief supporters of my Howlin' record label and is very missed as he was a great guy and incredible icon of a DJ. John personally told me that he had unreleased Beatles Test Pressings that John Lennon personally gave to him that few people in the world even know exist." [1]

Freddy Fresh used many alias names when releasing records, which some of them were played by Peel.
