David Beckham interviewed by Kirsty Young marks 75th Anniversary of Desert Island Discs . The BBC Radio show was created by Roy Plomley in 1942, and the format is simple: a guest is invited by Kirsty Young to choose the eight records they would take with them to a desert island. From Dame Nancy Rothewell (Vice Chancellor at University of Manchester) to David Beckham the full castaway archive is here. I could split my life into events before appearing on Desert Island Discs and events after. I Tom Cruised the sofa when they called me. But then I realized pretty quickly that I was in trouble.
I had no vinyl and no playlists. Basically I was under resourced. I felt I was not good enough either. Nerves. It took a while but I found my mojo and the eight tracks to take to the desert island. This happened by the gentle cajoling of a really experienced team at the BBC. It was the greatest list I’ve ever made thanks to The Desert Island Team.
Tell me one track that would make it on your list? I will make a spotify playlist with your choices. You can hear my Desert Island Discs by clicking here.
