John Peel - Kats Karavan 1961

This is apparently John Peel's first radio appearance. It was broadcast some time in 1961 on Dallas station WRR. The host is a chap called Bill Carroll who not unreasonably considers Peel (or Ravenscroft as Bill addresses him) as some kind of blues expert.

Leadbelly: Backwater Blues (Capitol)
Sonny Boy Williamson: Rub A Dub (RCA Victor)
Montana Taylor - Detroit Rocks (Brunswick)
