£1m Bid For John Peel's Record Collection

The British Library and a US radio station have made enquiries about buying John Peel's record collection.

Clive Selwood, who ran Peel's record label Strange Fruit, told The Daily Mirror an unamed US radio station had bid over £1m for the estimated 50,000 CDs and vinyl he kept at his specially extended home in Suffolk.

Peel's favourite song, 'Teenage Kicks', has been added to the Christmas No 1 race by William Hill, at odds of 14/1.

We need your help
