A unique visit down memory lane for all John Peel fans out there.

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel's Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who's ever sought solace in wireless.

Direct from a five-star, complete sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival, comes John Osborne's Radio 4 debut partly adapted from his acclaimed book Radio Head (Radio 4's Book Of The Week). The hit of the 2011 Edinburgh Festival.
