boydhilton BBC boldly says Desert Island Discs with MORRISSEY will be broadcast on Sunday November 29. He better have recorded it already...

Hope he's right and it's not Neil Morrissey....

Re: Morrissey on Desert Island Discs

This was mentioned by Janice Long way back at the beginning of the year when he started promoting Refusal. So it may have been pre-recorded months ago?

Does Kirsty Young use twitter? She'll know for definite since she would have done the interview.

Prediction for what his desert island luxury wll be: Johnny Marr

Don't think it's old news

GlasgowChivas @boydhilton Where did you get the Desert Island Disc info from? #Moz

boydhilton @GlasgowChivas BBC Press Info!

This exchange was less than 10mins ago and Boyd is a big fan too so hopefully this is a brand new thing.

If true, this is well cool

A quick look at DID's webpage only shows the next two shows http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qnmr/episodes/upcoming

But Julia Donaldson on the 15th looks cool - she's the author behind the Gruffalo :)

Yes, I am spleen
I'm going to stick my, *ahem*, bits on the line and say that if this comes to fruition I will eat my own penis.

Great news. About time, too.

Anyone care to try and predict his selections? One track each.

I'll go with The New York Dolls' 'Trash'.

My prediction will be: Roxy Music - 'For Your Pleasure' ( The Album that is ) I think I might be cheating a bit :D

Further guff from the BBC press office ~
Sunday 29 November
11.15am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

This week's castaway is iconic singer-songwriter Morrissey.

Born in 1959, Steven Patrick Morrissey grew up in Stretford, Manchester, and enjoyed enormous success with The Smiths as the band's lyricist and vocalist and received media attention for his views on animal rights and vegetarianism.

He launched a solo career after the band's break up in 1987 and has 10 Top 10 singles to his name. Music magazine NME has described Morrissey as "one of the most influential artists ever".

Morrissey talks to presenter Kirsty Young about his life, his career and about how he would cope on BBC Radio 4's mythical desert island.

Presenter/Kirsty Young, Producer/Leanne Buckle


And later that evening flick over to Radio3 for B.Bragg, Pearly King! ~
Sunday Feature – The Good Old Days?
Sunday 29 November
10.00-10.45pm BBC RADIO 3
Billy Bragg grew up in East London to the sound of his nan singing old music hall songs such as Don't Dilly Dally and Any Old Iron. In this programme he goes on a journey to explore the hidden history of this seminal but often misunderstood part of Britain's popular music heritage.

Perceptions of music hall were shaped by the long-running TV series The Good Old Days. Billy strips away the cosy nostalgia to reveal what was, in fact, Britain's first pop music – an urban folk culture in which raucous song vied with cut-throat commercialism.

His journey takes him from Abney Park cemetery, resting place of several music hall stars, to the Museum of London and Wilton's Music Hall, the last big music hall in the East End that survives from the mid-19th century. Among the experts he talks to are Professor Jacqueline Bratton of the University of London, Professor Derek Scott of the University of Leeds and Professor Jeffrey Richards from the University of Lancaster. The journey culminates in a specially staged performance in which Billy dons a pearly suit and gives his own characteristic take on some classic songs.

They started offering listen again for Desert Island Discs a couple of weeks ago after the rights issues were resolved... So Morrissey's should be available for a week after it's broadcast.
