A story about one of radios most famous DJs will be played out in Clevedon later this month.

Theatre Shop will host John Peel's Shed and Circled In The Radio Times at the end of April and it is likely to resonate with music fans.

Writer, theatre-maker and Radio Four favourite John Osborne will lead the double bill.

John Peel's Shed has run for the best part of a decade, after being launched at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 2011.

Osborne was a devoted listener to Peel's Radio One slot – and won a competition for saying the show offered 'records you want to hear, played by a man who wants you to hear them'.

The John Peel Shed features a selection of records previously owned by Peel.

Peel, who died in 2004 at the age of 65, was renowned for giving little-known artists some crucial airtime and Osborne's journey back in time will fittingly feature a few obscure bands.

The second half of the double bill – Circled In The Radio Times – reflects on how people, before electronic TV guides and catch-up services, used to ring the must-watch programmes.

Osborne asks what these used to reveal about the personality behind the television remote control and reflects on how modern technology has changed viewing habits forever.

The shows will be staged at Theatre Shop, in The Triangle, on April 26.

It will begin at 7.30pm and is recommended for people aged 15 and over.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at or on 03336 663366.

The Times has teamed up with Clevedon's Theatre Shop to offer readers the chance to win two pairs of tickets to see the show.
