Now here’s a peculiar occurrence: I’m the one being interviewed.
It is by none other than the legendary radio DJ and music journalist Steve Lamacq. This was part of the daily ‘Good Day, Bad Day’ segment on his BBC Radio 6 Music show, asking listeners to submit two songs (one for a good day and one for a bad day) and discuss what they mean to them. We discuss my tastes in music, past and present, and the world of music journalism.
I nominated Radiohead’s ‘Let Down’ and Tom Lehrer’s ‘We Will All Go Together When We Go‘. My final choice, the former, seemed to go down pretty well with listeners. I’m normally not a fan of Twitter, but I couldn’t resist keeping my eye on it for reactions.
