GUEST,Dazbo Your Desert Island Discs (17) Your Desert Island Discs 31 Mar 06

FYI, if you don't know Desert Island Discs is a long running radio programme (over 60 years now I think) where celebs pick 8 tracks to take with them if they were marooned on a desert island. The also get the complete works or Shakespeare, the Bible (or equivalent) and a luxury (useful items like boats, sea planes etc are banned). So what are yours? Rather than stick to your current favourites choose those which represent phases of your life, friends, relatives etc. Eight only and ONE luxury (although this is flexible ie you could have a bodhran and a beater but not a guitar and a banjo) and one book (again not the complete works of Catherine Cookson!)

Mine are:

Sun Arise - Rolf Harris
Play with Fire - Rolling Stones
Gaudete - Steeleye Span
Pretty Vacant - The Sex Pistols
Baggy Trousers - Madness
Happy Hour - The Housemartins
The Caliph of Bagdad - Ecclesfield Handbell Ringers
Scan Tester's Country Step Dance/Lemmy Brazil's No.2

Book: Flashman and the Redskins - George MacDonald Fraser

Luxury: DG Melodeon - Castagnari
