Home Truths


Home Truths was conceived primarily as a vehicle for John Peel and for a year after his death it continued with a roster of guest presenters including myself. Between 2004-2005 I presented twelve programmes as guest presenter - which was both a great honour and huge fun to do. These shows can still be heard archived on the BBC Website as RealAudio streams.

David Stafford became the fulltime host of Home Truths for its final 6 months, and the programme finally came to an end in June 2006. For the time being, there's still a BBC Home Truths web page with information about the show, links to various Peel tributes, and where every edition since early 2002 is archived via the "Listen Again" link. John's own last broadcast for the programme on 16 October 2004 can be heard here.
