Johnny L’Anson is an extremely popular talk radio host. So it was great to appear on his show yesterday to talk about the Book ( I am on at about the 2hr 1′ mark) He’s based at the BBC on Leeds, but his show, which is a mix of music and interviews, goes out across 38 local BBC radio stations. It has a big, mostly young, audience ( I was on after Adele), so it was a great opportunity for me. Thanks, Johnny!
It was a real pleasure to chat with him. He was smart and very personable.And had clearly done his homework. We talked about the effect of the story on my family, my father’s feelings. And he got me to read one of the letters, which always goes down very well.
