About the Author

Mark Radcliffe was born in Bolton and attended Manchester University. He has been employed by the BBC to talk in between records for over twenty years, many of these with Lard (aka Marc Riley) and currently with Stuart Maconie on Radio 6. He has won 6 Gold Sony Awards plus Sony's Music Broadcaster of the Year 2009, and has recorded five albums with two bands. He has three daughters and lives in Cheshire.

Review

"An amiable wander through the interesting bits of Mark Radcliffe's life, loosely linked by the theme of music... There are some good anecdotes, such as the time Mick Jagger stood on tiptoe just as a photo was taken, so as to appear taller than Radcliffe." --"Independent on Sunday" "Radcliffe's blunt, unfussy prose very much captures the spirit of what makes him such an enticing proposition on the radio: that ability to ramble whilst remaining both funny and compelling." --"The List" "With self-effacing charm, a keen eye for a joke and John Peel-esque adulation for great music, he tells us about how he met Tony Blair dressed as a Victorian undertaker, and how Paul McCartney told him that before he had words for "Yesterday" he sang the opening beats as "scrambled eggs." He remembers being Shane McGowan on "Stars In Their Eyes" and reflects on why Keith Richards might just be more rock'n'roll than Mick Jagger. Entertaining and touching yarns unfold within yarns." --"London Lite"
