John Peel’s Shed and Circled in the Radio Times
Storyteller, poet and Radio 4 regular John Osborne goes back on tour with a double bill of two shows; Circled in the Radio Times and his 2011 sellout Edinburgh show, John Peel’s Shed.
John Peel’s Shed was a complete sell out at the 2011 Edinburgh fringe and went on to enjoy a sixty date UK tour, including appearances at Soho Theatre and the Glastonbury festival and is now back on tour. 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. This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans.
Circled in the Radio Times is a show about a box of old copies of the Radio Times that used to belong to his granddad. He pieces together his life by the shows that have been circled.
