Postcard from John Peel in 1968 after he'd begun working for the BBC and founded his own label, Dandelion Records, named after his hamster - pictured on the card. 'Pig' was his early nickname for Sheila. The tape mentioned (Ego Iuvenis Sum) was a daft rendition of the Who song I'm A Boy sung in Latin by my school choir 2 years earlier.
