It takes three to Peel-o

Says a lot about the man when his position is replaced by none less than three DJ's. John Peel always gave Reggae (especially new UK labels) a good airing on his show over the years. I remember going through phases of listening to Peel on and off purely to catch hold of his reggae offerings, although I must say some of what he played either side of it was completely unlistenable to my ears. So three DJ's will now take Peels time slot; Ras Kwame, Rob Da Bank (didn't he gig in Northern Ireland recently?) and Huw Stephens. Good luck to the three of them. Hope they take the legacy of John Peel to new and higher levels.
