John Osborne is a writer and performer based in Norwich. He has written six half hour shows for Radio 4 and has had poetry broadcast on Radio 1, BBC 6Music and Radio 3. His first TV show After Hours, which he co-wrote with Molly Naylor was broadcast on Sky 1 in 2015. He has written three non-fiction books and is working on his fourth.
In 2002, John won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless. This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fan. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4 in December 2011.
‘If you ever need to explain radio’s sustained popularity to someone, suggest they listen to John Peel’s Shed’ – The Guardian.
