My Desert Island Discs

 

“Desert Island Discs” is a Radio Four program in which people choose eight music tracks, a book and a luxury: what would you take to a desert island?

Here’s my most recent choices:

 

Music:

 

I’ve listed these alphabetically by the performer:

 

“Eva Braun” by the Boomtown Rats

 

“Elstree” by the Buggles

 

            “Do The Hucklebuck” by Coast to Coast

 

“Concerto for a Rainy Day” by the Electric Light Orchestra

 

“Tom Hark” by the Piranhas

 

“Silly Thing” by the Sex Pistols

 

“Waterproof” originally by Sparks – but actually I prefer the cover version by Steve Marseille and Eric Boydston

 

“Hymn” originally by Ultravox - – but actually I prefer this cover version

 

Book

 

“The Mote in God’s Eye” by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle

 

Luxury

 

Can I ask for half a ton of Lego?
