Two images of BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, young and old, on the wall of the passageway to the Duke Of York pub in the city centre.
Peel is famous in Northern Ireland for his love of the song “Teenage Kicks” by Derry group The Undertones (WP). A line from the song – Teenage dreams so hard to beat” – was used in this mural/street art tribute to Peel, who died in 2004 (WP). Update 2013-06-21: the ‘teenage dreams’ artwork on Bridge End has been painted over (Tele | BBC | Irish Times; video from U.tv).
