In this month’s The Word, I interview my favourite interviewer – the fantastic Kirsty Young.
In the Word To The Wise slot, to mark the 70th anniversary of Desert Island Discs, she dishes out the secrets of radio presenting, rants about the dangers of 24-hour TV and remembers anchoring 9/11 coverage while her husband was a few blocks away in New York. She also gives the best marriage tip I’ve ever heard: never wear just your pop-socks in front of your husband.
Elsewhere in the mag, I write about the joys of Neil Tennant’s voice as part of the cover story about great singers. Subscribe to the mag here.
