Celebrate Libraries With The BBC

BBC Radio 6I thought it was worth a quick mention that as part of the ‘Paperback Writers’ series on BBC Radio 6, this Sunday at 1pm (Sun 6 Sep 2015) there is a ‘one off’ special programme, entitled ‘6 Music Celebrates Libraries’, in which authors discuss their musical influences.

I have listened to a few of these shows and they can be a great insight into some top authors and are always a fascinating listen, although finding out that one of your favourite writers has absolutely no taste in music can be disappointing!
