He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. Legendary DJ John Peel was awarded the prestigious Broadcasters' Broadcaster Award at the 25th annual Sony Radio Academy Awards. John won a vote that was made by fellow DJs and industry representatives. He was up against Terry Wogan and the late Alistair Cooke.
Peel's widow, Shelia Ravenscroft, accepted the award in his honor at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and commented to BBC6, "I feel very emotional," she said. "I'm just really, really touched that everybody is still remembering him. It's amazing, it's really wonderful."
