Two people who have made a difference ...
for entirely different reasons
Rosa Parks, who passed away this week. Her quiet act of defiance in 1955 Alabama sparked the civil rights movement and ushered into the limelight a young charismatic preacher named Martin Luther King.
****
John Peel, who passed away one year ago today. As a BBC DJ, he was responsible for promoting such musicians as David Bowie, White Stripes, Pulp, The Smiths, Nirvana, Joy Division, The Clash, The Fall, Public Enemy .....
The world's greatest music fan, music's greatest champion
