19 glorious years of NME's Godlike Genius Award

John Peel. The inaugural Godlike Genius, in 1994. In the earliest days of Godlike Genius the recipient didn't have to perform. Which is a relief since, the first year, that would've consisted of alternative radio's grand figurehead John Peel playing The fall and Andalucian fart-pipe records at the wrong speed for twenty minutes.
