The Book Club

Annie Nightingale: Five decades of pop culture

33 min listen

In This Episode

In this week’s Book Club podcast my guest is Annie Nightingale – Britain’s first female DJ, occasional Spectator contributor, and longest serving presenter of Radio One. Ahead of the publication of her new book Hey Hi Hello, Annie tells me about the Beatles’ secrets, BBC sexism, getting into rave culture, the John Peel she knew – and how when most people never get past the music they love in their teens, she’s never lost her drive to hear tunes she’s never heard before.


A blooming good offer
