Peel’s wife gets his records
John Peel has left his 25,000 strong record collection to his wife, it has emerged this weekend.
Sheila Ravenscroft will also receive the the rest of his estate, valued at more than 1.5 million pounds.
According to a report in Scotland on Sunday, Ravenscroft was granted the 25,000 vinyl albums and thousands of CD's after Peel, who died in October 2004, failed to specifically assign them in his will. In typically laid-back fashion, he said: "I ask her (but without imposing any binding obligation) to give effect to any wishes of mine which may come to her attention as to their disposal."
John's four children were left more than half-a-million pounds between them.
