      Any relation to Trevor Barker?

      How about Jimmy Possession - he does the alternative show on SBN and whenever I've listened in via the web, he plays a good Peel-esque mixture. Plus he's reasonably northern-sounding...the thing I can't bear about Mixing It and The Late Junction on Radio 3 is the posh home-counties presentation style.

        I agree that the great man deserves his holiday. It should do wonders
        for him. The amount of work that he does is astonishing. If this is
        some portent regarding his future at R1, then obviously that would be
        very bad news. I did not catch all of last night's program, but I
        didn't hear him mention the holiday--though he did mention plans for
        the show through 2002, so it seems safe to say that he will at least
        see out the year. (I also enjoyed the visit from Mary-Anne Hobbs,
        particularly when Peel commented that she looked "beguiling". I still
        think that Peel himself would probably choose her to take over the
        program, if given the choice)...
        I also wanted to thank Tom Roche for posting those photos from Peel
        Acres. Really excellent stuff!

          Nobody would argue that he deserves a break or that he will
          continue as before when he comes back. It's just that
          when any other dj goes for a holiday they get a replacement
          not their show swallowed up by other progs. There are even
          some specialist shows who have regular replacement djs from
          outside the BBCs normal roster.

          Even if they don't have someone long term in mind they could have
          brought in appropriate guest presenters as they do on the Breezeblock
          when Mary Annes away. I'd have loved to hear someone like Gedge do it

          The fact that they haven't done any of this does give one a sinking
          feeling about what might happen when John eventually goes as he must
          (time even catches up with legends!).
          The suspicion is that John has become bigger than the show and as
          far as the management is concerned its he who fills the time not the music.
          I agree there would be a considerable irony in this given his past history
          at the BBC but there it is.

            David Gedge would be the perfect choice... I think he has similar tastes to Peel, and he's obviously a big fan of the show.
