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 show is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in the wireless. Featuring a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel, many of which are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans.
A version of this show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and was also chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times. John Peel’s Shed by John Osborne is written and performed by John Osborne. Produced and co-devised by Show And Tell. Book your ticket here.
