New John Peel memoirs to be published

Further volume of late DJ's writings to hit the shelves

A posthumous book of articles by legendary radio DJ John Peel is to be published later this year.

‘The Olivetti Chronicles: Notes On Life, Music And Facial Hair’ will include previously unpublished articles, and hits bookshelves on October 23.

The articles were personally selected by Peel’s wife Sheila, and feature musings on Tubular Bells, Eurovision, shaving and the loss of virginity.


The book follows on from Peel‘s posthumous memoirs, ‘Margrave Of The Marshes’, which was published in 2005.
