Waaaay back in May '07 I wrote about the late, great John Peel -- the Liverpudlian who made a stopover in Dallas in the early 1960s before becoming "The Most Important DJ in Rock History," per the subtitle of the book by and about the great man behind, natch, The Peel Sessions. That olden Unfair Park item was entirely about Peel's detailed recollection of his daze in Dallas, with which I'd been fascinated for years. Hence, this artsy audio-visual follow-up posted today -- a 1996 taped interview with Peel fleshed out with old photos of the jock and the city, married to a Yo La Tengo soundtrack. Jump for it.
