02 May 2020 A Statement from the Johns Family
We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the heartfelt tributes and outpouring of sympathy in this difficult time. We have tuned into every show, cried, laughed and felt proud of what he achieved, we understand that Pee Jay meant a lot to many worldwide and we will do all we can to celebrate his legacy.
It was our wish to return Pee Jay home but sadly this will not be possible due to the risks associated with traveling while we are in the centre of a global epidemic. He will be laid to rest in the UK at a private funeral attended by under 10 close family members in accordance with Government Guidelines.
We are encouraging fans, coworkers and friends of Pee Jay to join in the virtual memorial being held today by tuning into Star FM, Power FM and ZiFM at 2PM (Zimbabwe Time).
Alternatively on Sunday at 4pm you can tune into the Steppers show on Classic 263 FM where there will be an exclusive interview with former Radio 3 boss John Matinde to get an insight into the proffesional life of Pee Jay.
We have confirmed a prestigious central London venue for a public memorial and exhibition on Sunday 18 April 2021. One of Pee Jay's last wishes was a space online, for fans to listen to his playlists and mixtapes, reliving the memories of Zimbabwe Radio, Scamps, Turtles, Monday Mellow Madness and more.
We are inviting anyone who knew or worked with Pee Jay to send their contributions or memories of him by signing up at www.djpeterjohns.com which will be included at the public memorial and on his memorial website, which will be launched on Sunday 18 April 2021.
The Johns Family.
