Facebook Desert Island Discs

  • Just for the fun of it I decided to do my own Desert Island Discs on Facebook.
    Any other day there might be a different selection.  But this is my list for tonight.
    Doing this was so much better than watching TV.
    These are – of course in reverse order
  • And finally on my Facebook Desert Island Discs – the book. I should be all intellectual and go for Camus The Myth of Sisyphus but really I want a big glossy book about The West Wing. Pure fantasy – we’ll never have anything like this at Stormont

  • The After Rudi and John Adams my Desert Island Discs choices get a little more difficult. What are yours? Somewhere I should have Rory Gallagher. First band I saw were Taste in 1969.
