Friday Night Is Desert Island Discs???

Kirsty Young
It's Desert Island Discs fever on Radio 2 tonight at 8pm as Friday Night Is Music Night pays a very special tribute to the long running BBC Radio Show devised by Roy Plomley in 1942.

The BBC have recently launched their own Desert Island Discs website which allows listeners to see castaways choices since the shows conception in 1942 and even allows listeners to listen to episodes from the show hosted by Kirsty Young and Sue Lawley.

I've been a big fan of the show for several years and always love the no nonsense approach taken by the interviewers to tap in on information the castaways wouldn't usually reveal. Sometimes controversial but usually very honest!

Andy Walmsley has paid tribute to this long standing radio institution over on Random Radio Jottings and Other Gubbins and I also have a few articles which I've featured on Retrospace and Suite101 so check them out!
