In September 2014, TheSpace and JohnPeelArchive websites launched a new Record Boxes series, featuring selections from John Peel’s record collection by key music figures.

The series is unrelated to John Peel's Record Box, a wooden box of favourite singles that became the subject of a TV documentary in 2005, or the Peel's Record Box monthly lists of current favourite singles and albums that the DJ submitted to the BBC Radio One website from 2002.

Marking the tenth anniversary of Peel's death, the second record box of the new series featured the DJ's own choices for Desert Island Discs in 1990.
