Judith Kerr Classic Desert Island Discs

I love listening to the older editions. I’m quite new to podcasts. This edition was delightful. What a humble & inspiring woman. I don’t always like the music choices but hearing the persons life story, well you just couldn’t imagine what some people have experienced. It inspires me to revisit the Mog books for my grandson too

Fantastic Podcast!

I am new to Podcasts and I am also new to Desert Island Discs. So I started listening a couple of weeks ago to what I thought would be a some boring anecdotes and some ok music. How wrong was I?
Brilliant artists like Nile Rodgers, Stella McCartney and George Martin, discussing their life, as well as the people or circumstances that came along and changed their outlook on life. Inter mingled with music tracks that are important enough to choose for the show. Absolutely top draw, so thanks for collating these episodes, and I look forward to ploughing through them at every opportunity. Allan
