"I'm the one who comes on Radio 1 late at night and plays records made by sulky Belgian art students in basements dying of TB."

The Perfumed Garden was the name of John Peel's show on the pirate station, Radio London, back in the 60s when I was but a sprat. But now there's a blog called The Perfumed Garden, run by Kris from Burning World, where you can get a listen to some sessions from Peel's BBC radio show from over the years. Good to see someone doing this sort of thing.

And the silly title for this post came from this fine compendium of Peel quotations.
