John Peel’s record collection goes online

The record collection of late, legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel will soon be available to browse online, as the BBC reports. His collection of LPs will be added in increments of 100 each week from May through October at a website called the Space, run by the BBC and Arts Council England.

According to Tom Barker, director of the John Peel Centre in Suffolk, England, the virtual collection will function as “an online interactive museum.” Scanned album artwork will offer a visualization of each album, some of which will be available to stream. Others will point to archives of the now iconic “Peel Sessions.” Baker told the BBC, “this is the first step in the journey of making one of the most important archives in modern music history available completely.”
