When bands used to play on John Peel’s radio show to record the Peel Sessions etc, they used to treat the studio as a home from home…as you can see many of them left stickers and scribing’s on the studio door.
These pictures were taken about 5 years ago before the BBC Maida Vale revamp.

John Peel’s recors collection has now been releases online through a collaboration from the BBC and the Arts Council and can be found at www.thespace.org.
