In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless, featuring a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel.
“One of the loveliest things you’ll see all year” ★★★★ (The Herald)
“Genius. A comic highlight” (The Guardian)
“I heartily recommend John Peel’s Shed. It is a gentle tale of one man’s passion for obscure music and the radio which has been compared to the work of Daniel Kitson” (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
“A keen eye for a killer line and the significance of the trivia of daily life, Osborne sits somewhere between Tom Wrigglesworth and Daniel Kitson. I could have listened for hours” ★★★★★ (The Independent)
