Hundreds of the late radio legend John Peel's radio shows have been digitised and made available online.

The project - not a BBC initiative but an 'unofficial' archive created by a fan - features more than 900 hours of Peel's Radio 1 and pirate radio output.

In total 458 episodes of Peel's show have been uploaded.

While far from a complete list - only three 1973 shows appear, for instance - it is an amazing reminder of his life's work.

SoundCloud user +dB, apparently based in Yorkshire, digitised the shows, which date back from 1967 to Peel's final BBC appearances in 2004.

Peel's own record collection is currently being uploaded as part of an 'interactive online museum' but his shows had not been made available to this extent before now.
