    Wasn't there a site where you could virtually explore Peel's record collection ?

    Thanks for that link.
    That's the next few weeks of my life taken care of!

    I still have many of those sessions on cassette tape, and a few on vinyl.

    John Peel changed my life. Listened almost every night from June 1977 until about 1985.
    Still miss him.

    Essential part of my youth, and I think for most of the UK from the 60's to the end.

    If ever a man deserved a knighthood for services to music, it was John Peel.

    This is not the site i was thinking about. You had a shelf full of records alphabetically filed, and when you moused over, you could see the record sleeves if i remember correctly. It was some flash site or something.

    If i can find it back, i will post the link. I think i read about it here, but i was a long time ago.

    Thanks for the link though, "Currently archived 2679 records from 106,000".
    Loads more to go !

    edit https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-suffolk-21602221
    "The virtual online archive allows you to browse along shelves of vinyl record sleeves"

    That is what i remembered, but maybe it is not online anymore.
