John Osborne: John Peel’s Shed
Sunday 10th February at The Crown & Anchor
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 the wireless.
This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and it was chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times.
A complete pleasure. All radio nerds need to see it but non nerds will also love it – Greg James, Radio 1.
Beautifully-written, funny and poignant… Just as John Peel’s records changed his life this lovely, simple, beautifully executed show has enriched ours ★★★★★ The Scotsman.
A wonderful show and a great way to remember John Peel. I bloody loved it – Josie Long.
It’ll nourish your soul – Geoff Lloyd.
One of the Top Ten Theatre Highlights of the Edinburgh Festival… Funny, perceptive and charming ★★★★ The Telegraph
in association with The Inn Crowd and Applause Rural Touring
