Brian Eno was the fifth high-profile speaker to deliver the John Peel Lecture since 2011 as a part of the Radio Festival. Past speakers have included The Who’s Pete Townshend, who in 2011 explored the implications of digital music media in an age of free downloads and a disposable attitude to music; Billy Bragg, whose speech in 2012 explored how music and radio need mavericks to keep moving forward; Charlotte Church, who in 2013 gave an insightful speech on the theme of women and their representation in the music industry; and in 2014 Iggy Pop, who spoke about free music in a capitalist society.
