PEEL’S ONE IN A MILLION RECORD COLLECTION

And it's believed there are other interested parties, including the British Library...

A US radio company has bid “over £1 million” for JOHN PEEL’s record collection, it has been reported.

The collection, which features tens of thousands of records, is said to be “priceless” by manager Clive Selwood.

“A US radio company has offered us over £1 million. The British Library are also interested,” he explained to The Mirror, although it is unclear what will happen to the records.

“There are tens of thousands of records. It’s got all his annotations on it – three asterisks meant the record must be played. He had to extend his house in Suffolk to hold them all.”

It was announced on Tuesday (October 26) that the legendary BBC DJ died from a heart attack while on holiday in Peru.
