Had the pleasure earlier this evening of watching Billy Bragg give the Annual John Peel Lecture on BBC 6. The post title comes from his lecture which covered Braggs early days pre record deal and the role Peel played in Bragg making the breakthrough.
Bragg also talks about class and musical opportunities as well as the way music is going with more and more of it being online.
Well worth a listen.
You can listen to it here as well as see a few clips from the lecture.
