In a small cupboard behind the backroom, lurks Alan. Alan doesn't know very much about computers, but he likes listening to the radio. He's been listening to the radio since he was 12 - a very long time ago, now. He didn't listen to John Peel right at the beginning of his Radio One career, because he was boycotting the BBC in support of the Pirates. He didn't listen to Peel regularly towards the end, either, because "he was on at a funny time". He did listen to John Peel quite a lot in the period in between. Anyway, Alan reckons that none of the DJs he does listen to now (e.g. Andy Kershaw, Mark LaMarr, Bob Harris, and several of the 6Music ones) would be DJs if it wasn't for John Peel. John Peel was therefore a Very Good Thing, and an Internet radio station to carry on in his spirit is a Very Good Thing also.
If there is one thing Alan has learnt in the years since he was 12, it's that you should never volunteer to be the Treasurer of anything. Chairperson, Secretary, Press Officer, Membership Secretary, perhaps, but not Treasurer. You'll spend your entire time saying "I'm not sure we can afford that," and "can't we get it any cheaper?" and nobody will like you.
