Tractor peel back the years for John 
From BBC Manchester:

In 1972, Rochdale's Tractor were asked by John Peel to record a track for his birthday. The resulting track, Ravenscroft’s 13 Bar Boogie, is the only track that Peel specifically requested to feature part of his name.

Now, as part of John Peel Day, the band have remixed the track, renaming it John Peel's 13 Bar Boogie 2006, and included samples of both the original song and of John's voice.

John Peel Day is on Thursday 12 October 2006, the anniversary of the DJ's last live broadcast.
