How do the ‘pirates’ become the mainstream? Billy Bragg, musician and social commentator, explores how the music and radio industries need mavericks to push them forward in the 2012 BBC 6 Music John Peel Lecture with 7digital. Also known as The Bard of Barking, Bragg famously got his first radio play on Peel’s show after delivering a mushroom biryani to the hungry radio legend.

Launched by BBC 6 Music in 2011 with Pete Townshend as its first speaker, the John Peel Lecture invites a notable thinker from the music world to explore the continuing relationship between the music and broadcasting industries.
