Andrew Weatherall (Windsor, 1963) is een Engelse dj, producent, remixer en muziekjournalist. Hij heeft meerdere remixes op zijn naam staan (o.a. “World in Motion” van New Order en "Loaded", een remix van Primal Scream's eerdere nummer “I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have”), heeft het electronische muziektrio The Sabres of Paradise opgericht, was producer van muzikanten als Beth Orton, Primal Scream en One Dove, Björk, Siouxsie Sioux, The Orb, The Future Sound of London, New Order, Manic Street Preachers, My Bloody Valentine en Saint Etienne. 

Goodnight and Good Riddance: How Thirty-Five Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Britain is a social history, a diary of a nation's changing culture, and an in-depth appraisal of one of our greatest broadcasters, a man who can legitimately be called the most influential figure in post-war British popular music. Without the support of John Peel, it's unlikely that innumerable artists - from David Bowie to Dizzee Rascal, Jethro Tull to Joy Division - would have received national radio exposure.

But Peel's influence goes much deeper than this. Whether he was championing punk, reggae, jungle or grime, he had a unique relationship with his audience that was part taste-maker, part trusted friend. The book focuses on some 300 shows between 1967 and 2004, giving a thorough overview of Peel's broadcasting career and placing it in its cultural and social contexts.
