John Peel Is Dead

John Peel is dead
Stop all the clocks
Or at least turn off the radio
If John Peel is dead then
who will play the music

Did you know John Peel
at the break of day
Did you know John Peel
and his Radio way

But this is no good
And I can’t go on.
And there is no fun
in John Peel being dead

Time was 'only he wore black
The first, best, last pirate DJ of them all
Strolling in The King’s Road.
Fun, famous and fine hearted.
….......…..Thanks John

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
