Subject: RE: Desert Island Discs
This is the sort of thing that has driven me to be the gibbering demented person I am (and the Pandora who started the "world's worst thread" according to Clinton!). I just can't narrow my choices down! The programme doesn't allow Collected Works for the books so I can't take E.F.Benson so it would have to be the Grossmiths' "Diary of a Nobody", but the records... !( the programme is 8 tracks, I could cheat by choosing LP/CD tracks to get the rest of the record) I could never narrow it down to 8 tracks. I tried thinking of tracks with 2 favourites playing together (Louis Armstrong & Sidney Bechet, Basie and Oscar Peterson etc) but I think I'll have to stay at home, if I can't take all my records I'm not going!
