Photojournal: John Peel
Firm favourite

Peel's favourite track remained The Undertones' 1978 single, Teenage Kicks.

It initially failed to chart in September that year but Peel latched on to it and played it incessantly on air.

It helped the band win a major record deal with Sire.

The song is still popular today - pop act Busted recently covered it.
