I would like to bring members attention to some fantastic Desert Island Discs in the BBC Archive that are now freely available as podcasts.
BBC Desert Island Discs Archive 1940's to Present Day
You will find some tremendous interviews with a great many musicians (folk, country, pop, classical, etc..), and other popular people in life, going back several decades. Whilst the muisc choices are not complete (because of copyright issues), the intervews give great insight into so many lives and what was happening at the time.
It's a great way to pass away 30-40 minutes when relaxing.
I hope you find the link of use
