Peel complains that the Observer newspaper printed an article over the weekend claiming that grime music only gets played by the BBC on the 1Xtra station. JP: "Obviously it's uncool to refer to Radio One and acknowledge the fact that we do anything that's worth doing, but the fact is, this is lazy journalism."
This develops into a bit of a rant about the conservative musical tastes of the "posh papers" and how they ignore Peel's show.
JP: "Here's a note that arrived in the post today. Kind of thing that makes you feel humble and loved. This says 'Old man ... die soon please. Then a Welsh accent DJ can have your slot. Radio One treats the Welsh like shit. The Welsh part-own Radio One. The Welsh pay the license fee.' I think it's fair to say we probably play more Welsh music on these programs than radio stations in Wales. If you want to challenge that, please do. In the meantime, that's a bit of a collectors item ... old man, die soon."
