Records and music memorabilia from the legendary BBC DJ John Peel's personal collection are being auctioned off this June, The Guardian reports. Peel's family said in a statement:

John/Dad was in a position to have access to many of the most celebrated people and events in the history of popular music. This is reflected in a wealth of souvenirs he collected. In going through the accumulation of 40 years of pop music moments, we decided that some of the most interesting items might find a home, with fans of his programme or of the artists whose music he played.

The items include a signed mono pressing of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1968 album Two Virgins that's estimated to sell for between £15,000 and £20,000, a handwritten letter signed by David Bowie, a 7" of Nirvana's "Love Buzz"/"Big Cheese" single, John Peel's horn gramophone, a Pink Floyd concert poster from 1968, Joy Division's 1978 7" An Ideal For Living, a promotional Rolling Stones album signed by the band, a copy of Queen's Queen II with a handwritten letter by Freddie Mercury, and more.

The auction is being held at Bonhams Knightsbridge in London on June 14. More info here.
